Oral History: A Guide for Schools Cover Image Login to save this item A vector image of a star to represent action to save this item
Oral History: A Guide for Schools

History is all around us. We only have to ask our own families and communities. They can tell us enough stories to fill a library of books. This kind of history is called ORAL HISTORY. Documents and books often concentrate on famous people and big events. But many people’s experiences and voices have been hidden from history. Oral history fills in the gaps and gives us history which includes everyone. With digital technology, anyone can preserve oral histories and share them with others. It is a wonderful way of developing digital and interviewing skills while learning about history.  It can build the confidence of young people and respect between generations. This guide has been created in partnership by the Oral History Society and People’s Collection Wales. It offers helpful advice on getting started with an oral history project in your school or community.   Key Stage 2, 3 & 4 History, Literacy Skills, Digital Competence Framework   Learning Activity Pack This resource provides learning activities for your students using our website.

Award winning animation company Winding Snake Productions worked with the community to produce the two animated films that share stories about how people fleeing conflict have been made welcome in Ystradgynlais. This project won the Digital Excellence Award in the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative Competition 2018. This award was funded by People's Collection Wales.

Case Study: Mapping the Model

Mapping the Model was an Arts Council of Wales Lead Creative Schools Project, that took place in Model Church in Wales School, Carmarthen, in the Spring Term of 2018. The project was a collaboration between artist Rowan O’Neill and the Year 4 Creative Group, and was designed in response to the brief prepared by the school: Can an exploration of deep mapping, via Welsh poetry and drama, improve confidence and oracy skills and enhance creative thinking for pupils in Year 4?The challenge of this project was to find different ways of mapping links between the school and the town of Carmarthen, including geography, history and legend. The result was an investigative project around the concept of mapping, that used People’s Collection Wales to digitally publish and record the diverse work created. Key Stage 2History, Geography, Literacy skills, Numeracy skills, Digital Competence Framework Case StudySee how other schools have used our website to give you ideas for your own digital projects.

John Cornwell: Colliery photos

John Cornwell was a freelance photographer who took many photographs of collieries, mostly in south Wales and the English Midlands, both underground and on the surface, during the 1970s and early 1980s. He perfected a method of underground photography using the standard colliery lighting and was able to photograph coal faces, roadways, shafts and equipment with amazing clarity. In addition to photographing working mines he also recorded abandoned mine workings, above and below ground. John Cornwell was also well respected in the broader field of industrial archaeology. He published a number of books on Welsh and English collieries. The copyright of his south Wales images are now owned by National Museum Wales. Key Stage 2History, Art & DesignKey Stage 3Art & Design CollectionWe have collected these items together so that you can quickly and easily use them as resources to create activities for your class.
