Teachers' Guide: Activity Summary:
Newbury Coat

The story of the Newbury Coat is a great way to introduce a piece of local history to children. The PowerPoint presentation tells the story in an easy, accessible way for both Key Stage 1 and 2 children.

This presentation is suitable for use in a Literacy lesson, either being used with the whole class or by individuals at PCs. The activity then encourages children to re-write the text for a younger audience, sequencing the story and presenting it in a cartoon form.
