Life’s a Journey

 

Isabell Bird in Tibet
 

New beginnings can be both exciting and a little scary.  Check out our brand new Leeds Museums resource on two brave adventurers for inspiration on tackling new situations:  In the 1800s, Isabella Bird challenged the social stereotype of women, spending most of her life travelling to countries as diverse as Canada, Turkey and Korea.  In the early 1900s, Captain Oates set out as part of the iconic Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole, gathering scientific data along the way that is still being used today!

 

Establishing a Class Community

Pakistani Wedding Celebrations in a Wakefield Street

If you’re setting your class values for the rest of the year, why not explore our brand new resource focussing on the experiences of Pakistani migrants into Britain.  Including historical background of colonial Britain’s approach immigration post-war, and using primary source documents from both Wakefield and the National Archives, it’s a rich source of stories to spark discussions on new beginnings, equality and discrimination and creating a shared community.

 

International Peace Day (21st September)
