Our Histories - teaching pack for key stage 1-2

This pack, aimed at teaching and learning in KS1 and KS2, contains information and teaching ideas for 5 global equality and cultural events. Martin Luther King Day, Holocaust Memorial Day, Chinese New Year, Black History month around the world and LGBT+ History month.  It was developed before the recent closure of schools, so some ideas may need to be adapted for remote learning. It is not intended to include everything but there are links to further resources and information. We hope members find this useful and would welcome feedback.
