Primary Resource or Equipment – ICT, Winner – Natural Curriculum

The judges commented, “This resource capitalises on the high-quality language and visuals of nature documentaries to make grammar activities even more purposeful and engaging.  The judges can see the wider potential of the use of the freely available content from the Educational Recording Agency, which could be applied to other areas of the curriculum.”

Free Educational Resource, Winner – Educational Recording Agency – Natural Curriculum

The judges commented, “An innovative approach to teaching grammar. Judges were really impressed by the combination of highly engaging video content from the BBC Natural History archive and quality, differentiated resources for teaching and learning, allowing children to develop their literacy skills whilst observing and learning about the natural world.”

A special thanks to all the brilliant teachers who have contributed to the resource, to the Educational Recording Agency team and to David Millington for his great vision and ingenuity.
