This Prehistoric Pottery Resource Pack is designed to work within Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 of the National Curriculum history syllabus. It provides extension material for the archaeology led session provided by the Education Department at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. The session is based on objects in the First Farmers gallery. The pictures in this pack and information available online on the Norfolk Heritage Explorer website compliment and extend the topics covered in the museum session but can also be used as stand alone resources.
The Resource Pack provides details from the website, photographs and drawings from the paper archives held by Norfolk Historic Environment Service designed to help children develop an awareness of archaeological objects and how they can be used to understand the past. The pack also includes possible teaching activities and ideas for cross curricular working.
Images used in the pack can also be accessed in an online teacher's gallery for use on interactive whiteboards at: http://gallery.e2bn.org/gallery587.html
The pack is part of a series of Resource Packs linked to the National Curriculum available from Norfolk Historic Environment Service.
