This site, based around two museums in Bedford, contains really useful material to help teachers cover some of the QCA units of work.

‘Toys of the Past’ (KS1 History) features several toy sorting and describing activities as well as a wonderful gallery of old toys.

‘Mother Nature, Designer’ (KS2 Art & Design) has art examples, photographs of both natural and designed objects and an online pattern making activity.

Finally, ‘Take a Seat’ (KS2 Art & Design) contains photographs of chairs from the museum collection, art featuring chairs and two interactive activities.

Each section of the site also includes a introduction for teachers, a scheme of work, some activity sheets (where appropriate) and examples of pupils’ work.
