Understanding local heritage through creative learning

Here are resources to introduce Preschool and Key Stage 1 children to ancient iron working in the Blackdown Hills. The theme is presented through a story set in the Iron Age, ‘Noni the Blacksmith’, which you can view and listen to here. The downloadable lesson ideas contain suggestions on art, craft, movement and play activities to accompany the story. If you would like an artist and heritage educator to run a workshop at your preschool/school you can book a workshop with arts and creative learning initiative The Carousel Project using the link below. Everything on this website is free for teachers to use. The resources were developed as part of the Blackdowns Metal Makers project in collaboration with Hemyock Preschool and Primary School.
