The Hull History Centre works with Heritage Learning to offer sessions for schools. These are designed to encourage the development of key skills whilst bringing historical periods to life through literacy, geography and citizenship cross-curricular links.
Henry's Hull (2 hours, KS1/2)
- Investigate original Tudor documents
- Discover the effect Henry VIII’s reign had on Hull
- Decipher Tudor handwriting in our reading challenge
- Practise your own Tudor handwriting with a quill and ink to create a scroll.
Two new sessions are currently being developed:
Hull at War (2 hours, KS2)
Hull at War focuses on those involved in running the city during wartime. Examine documents, photographs, maps and film from our wartime collections to investigate wartime incidents in Hull.
The session is designed to promote enquiry and problem solving skills as well as provide a basic understanding of World War Two history and the value of archive and historical library collections.
The History Centre has a supporting resource for teachers on the Hull blitz on the MyLearning website
Mapping Hull (2 hours, KS2)
How did Hull develop and grow during Georgian and Victorian times? Working with maps, photographs, newspaper articles, letters and a variety of other historical resources, map the growth of our city.
This session is designed to promote enquiry and problem solving skills, as well as provide a basic understanding of local history and the value of archive and historical library collections.
