Teaching Resources

Our teaching resources have been designed to meet the needs of the curriculum, linking what you learn at a property with pre- and post- visit classroom activities. We’re continually developing a range of relevant and engaging resources to support learning groups before, during and after their visit.

Teaching history

History is an incredibly valuable subject to learn. It builds enquiry skills, fuels the imagination and helps children feel a sense of self in a wider context. 

But with thousands of years to cover, it can be hard to know where to start. We have gathered together advice, hints and tips from teachers, education experts and historians to support your teaching of the past.
