July 2014 – Oh, I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside…
The sentiment conveyed in this old music hall title will resonate with many at this time of year and our Seaside topic should fit in nicely.
By searching our topics you will find that we already have Seaside as a title, but we are revisiting the topic to add more resources. Currently, we have over fifty topic titles and over fifty different resource titles, so revisits are necessary for those topics which are sparsely populated and our mixed bags steadily add to the collections where more content is needed.
Our material is very much dependent upon us having enough photographs to create the resources and sometimes this limits our ability to fulfil requests; although we always try to do what we can and apologise if we haven’t fulfilled on some occasions. Please let us know about any new topics you have planned for the 2014 curriculum so we can focus our minds, and our cameras, this summer!
The new ‘Thought for the Week’ is something we have wanted to do for some time and now it is a reality. We surprised ourselves when we saw that this ‘new’ feature already has a collection of eight in our Gallery section. They are aimed to be topical although by their nature they should stand the test of time and be a useful reserve for that assembly or circle time you need to find a focus for.
You will find some useful July dates, although I imagine that the end of term is the one on most minds! Follow the link for Awareness dates, Religious dates, ‘National Days’ and ‘This Day in History’:
Have a great holiday.
