Victorian Swansea - People and Possessions

What objects did the people of Swansea have in their houses in the mid-19th century? When you visit a museum you will see displays of household objects and everyday items that have survived from the 19th century. Some have been handed down through families, some have been found by archaeologists, some have been bought or borrowed, some have been donated to the museum. Some relate to people's work, some to running the household, some to leisure and pastimes.Objects can tell us a lot about how people lived, how well-off or poor they were and what sorts of materials and manufacturing were available. We can also see what sorts of things were bought and sold, used and treasured, thrown away or lost by people in the past.This Learning Activity has everything you need to run a session yourself in the classroom, and can also link with school workshops at the National Waterfront Museum and Swansea Museum. Key Stage 2History, Computing, Literacy skills  Learning ActivityThis resource provides learning activities for your students using our content. It is one of a series of 3 relating to 'Victorian Swansea' for KS2.

Life of a Roman Soldier

This movie was filmed by pupils from St Woolos Primary School, Newport, at National Roman Legion Museum, Caerleon. As part of Kids in Museums Take Over Day in November 2015 pupils from St Woolos were given a tour of the Museum including a special visit to the 'behind the scenes' collection area. Here the children saw and held Roman objects that are rarely seen by the public, some of them only recently found at the site. Using what they had learnt as inspiration the pupils then wrote, filmed and starred in this fantastic re-enactment of the life of a Roman soldier, living and training in the Roman barracks at Isca (now Caerleon) nearly 2000 years ago. Key Stage 2History, Digital Competence Framework, Computing, Literacy skills Case StudySee how other schools have used our content to give you ideas for making your own digital projects.
