Published: Jul 2020

The Year 6 Teacher at a Bristol primary school uses an imaginative, if challenging, approach to a local history project when she invites five women to talk to her class.

In this review programme the teacher and a history specialist look back at a video tape of the lesson she taught. They explore the approach, the structure of the lesson and the contribution of oral sources, photographs and ICT in the learning experience.

Did bringing in the old Wills Tobacco employees provide an interesting and useful resource to base this history lesson on?
