Free education activity packs

Working with local Suffolk based design consultancy Steamboat Creative, Marks Hall Estate have created a series of cross-curricular activity packs rooted in the story of the Estate. There are 10 resources in total, aimed at pupils studying key stages 1-4. Each resource focuses on one of five subjects being taught as part of the national curriculum: geography, art, science, history, and English.

As part of the collection of free resources, there will also be SEND specific activities for each topic which will support the education of children with special educational needs and disabilities specially designed to be used within mainstream classrooms, specialist settings or at home.

Two new resources will be released each week in September, along with the supporting SEND activities.
