This resource is free to everyone (just requires free registration on this website).

Children can be introduced to the idea that people from other societies have been coming to Britain for a long time. They can learn about some of the tensions involved in the settlement as well as ways of life and matters that impact on us still.  

Links can be made with other societies that contributed to the formation of the United Kingdom and how Saxons, Vikings and Scots  contributed to the development of institutions, culture and ways of life in the country.  

There is a strong emphasis on children investigating issues and solving valid historical questions recognising the nature of the evidence on which their judgements and knowledge are based.
