More exceptional lessons from Mr P! All ideas can be easily adapted for other history topics- I am using them for WW1/2. Great to feel inspired after a long summer break! Thank you :-)
Great ideas for use in a variety of topics.
Over the past year or so Lee has provided myself (and I'm sure 100s of other teachers) with some fantastic ideas for creative use of iPads via his blog, Twitter feed and presentations. I'm delighted that he is now sharing those ideas in the the form of iBooks and this book really is one of the best ways that you can spend 19 pennies! The Tudors merely act as an example stimulus, as almost all of the activities could be used in a variety of curriculum topics. An essential purchase for anyone using iPads in Primary Schools. Well done Lee, a fantastic publication.
