A Century's Memories
The resulting stories and memories have been collected and published in an illustrated commemorative book and as a series of educational resources. We created four learning resources using these stories and research about World War One all featuring audio clips that we produced from the interviews. They included an assembly incorporating a Year 6 lesson focused on public speaking and a cross curricular lesson concentrating on the role of wartime women.
A Century's Memories is a Lottery-funded community project to collect and share First World War stories and memories from the Bath area.
Groups of young people from Bath College, Keynsham Army Cadet Force and Midsomer Norton Cadet Force got to know and interviewed older residents from across the district about what their families and communities were doing during World War One.
"Sustainable Hive worked with us to produce KS2 learning resources for our World War One memories project. We are delighted with the result and have had very positive feedback from teachers and education specialists about the quality and usability of the lesson packs. Clare and Jo completely understood our brief and were full of good ideas from the start. They were a joy to work with, very reliable and professional throughout. This made for an enjoyable and collaborative experience for us as clients. Sustainable Hive brought appropriate skills, curriculum expertise and a teacher-focused approach to the work. We would not hesitate to work with them again, or to recommend their services."
