Learning Resources

We're committed to educating young people about the history of British mountaineering and how our mountainous environments are changing. To achieve this goal we're working to expand our learning resources that KS1 and KS2 teachers can use as part of their lessons. These are a great way to introduce more context to the likes of English, Geography, PSHE and Design/Technology classes.

Man + Mountain: Learning Resources

Following our Heritage Lottery Funded project, we've developed a range of learning resources appropriate for KS1 and KS2 that provide teach ideas and sequences, pupil activities and worksheets which are all linked to the National Curriculum. These online resources also link to Project Boxes containing climbing clothing and equipment from different ages which bring excellent hands-on investigations and interactive opportunities into the classroom.

All the web resources below are free to download from the link below.  They include teaching ideas, sequences, pupil activities and worksheets, and all are linked to the National Curriculum. They would fit in particularly well in cross-curricular topics such as Explorers, Local Studies, Mountains, Local Heroes.
