KS3 > Josiah C. Wedgwood

The History of Parliament Trust were fortunate to be awarded Heritage Lottery funding for a number of activities to commemorate the life and career of the organisation's founder, Colonel Josiah C. Wedgwood. As part of our activities in 2018 and 2019 in and around Wedgwood's former constituency, Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, we have created a pack of educational materials for Key Stage 3 history. These materials are appropriate for history students at KS3 nationwide and are now available here for free. 

Take a look below, where you can download the whole pack or individual workshops and resources. Our three fully planned workshops include lesson plans, in-class activities, primary source material and  resources for teachers.
