Royal Charter Shipwreck case study

The 'Great Storm of 1859', one of the most destructive storms in British history, hit the coast of Wales on 25-26 October 1859. Nearly 150 ships were lost, the most famous of which was the steamship Royal Charter, which wrecked off the coast of Anglesey with the loss of 450 lives. The shipwrecks of the Great Storm provide a unique window on the Victorian period in Wales - a moment in time through which to explore our trading links with the wider world, forgotten maritime industries, and the society of the day.Three schools from Anglesey spent several months studying the Royal Charter shipwreck, in a joint partnership project between Cadw and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW). Read about their project, get great ideas for classroom activities and see examples of the work produced by the pupils. You can also explore the source material they used here on People's Collection Wales, including beautiful gold artefacts and everyday objects recovered from the Royal Charter shipwreck. Key Stage 2History, Literacy skills, Numeracy skills Case StudySee how other schools have used our website to give you ideas for your own digital projects.

Mapping the Model case study

Mapping the Model was an Arts Council of Wales Lead Creative Schools Project, that took place in Model Church in Wales School, Carmarthen, in the Spring Term of 2018. The project was a collaboration between artist Rowan O’Neill and the Year 4 Creative Group, and was designed in response to the brief prepared by the school: Can an exploration of deep mapping, via Welsh poetry and drama, improve confidence and oracy skills and enhance creative thinking for pupils in Year 4?The challenge of this project was to find different ways of mapping links between the school and the town of Carmarthen, including geography, history and legend. The result was an investigative project around the concept of mapping, that used People’s Collection Wales to digitally publish and record the diverse work created. Key Stage 2History, Geography, Literacy skills, Numeracy skills, Digital Competence Framework Case StudySee how other schools have used our website to give you ideas for your own digital projects.
