|Longship On line Educational Web Portal|
Longship has recently commissioned an an on-line educational learning portal about the Vikings and Saxons
It has specifically designed for use in schools as an aid to teaching the Raiders, Invaders & Settlers part of the History section of Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum, but it can also equally be enjoyed by children at home and anybody learning or teaching about the Vikings and Saxons.
The portal is comprised of three separate sections
Although designed as an integrated package the Photographic Archive and the photographs contained within it can be accessed separately. The archive contains 3 different sized copies of every picture, which can be used to enhance work done in the classroom or a home.
Also included is a teachers pack and a number of worksheets designed by Longship and for use in the class room covering a wide range of subjects.
The web portal is an ideal accompaniment to a visit to your school by Longship and is suitable to be used either before or after a visit.
Longship has spent considerable time and resources on this project, and it has been developed and tested with the help of several schools and Wolverhampton University. Therefore ensuring it is a usable and valuable resource for schools and children alike, and like all things Longship does it combines learning with fun.
The web portal can be found at www.hammerandcross.com and it will be accessable by paying a small membership fee. you are free to take alook at the site now but it is under developement and so some areas are not working and there are bugs to be ironed out.
Memebrship can either be on an individual basis for varying periods of time from one month to a year, or on a group/school basis for period of one year or five years and allows up to 50 pupils at a time, this number can be increased by contacting Longship
If you are interested in "The Hammer & Cross" when it comes online later this year, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify you as soon as it becomes available.
