No Turning Back – schools resources

Our new exhibition No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments That Changed Britain focuses on seven pivotal moments when migration shaped the history of Britain.

We are coordinating a range of workshops and self-directed activities for school trips to the exhibition. Below you will find KS3 and KS4 resources co-designed with teachers for before your visit and to follow up in the classroom afterwards. Whilst these resources cater for KS3 and 4, we are also working with year 5 and 6 pupils so please also get in touch if you are a KS2 teacher. We welcome your feedback on these resources.

England’s Immigrants 1330 – 1550

Various sets of introductory powerpoints produced for primary and secondary pupils by teachers as part of the teacher scholar programme hosted by University of York and the National Archives. These lessons introduce pupils to the results of the research project into medieval immigration using extensive government records from the time.

Objects in Focus

The learning team at the Jewish Museum have chosen objects from the museum’s collection for your students to focus on in the classroom.  Each of the objects relate to one of their four Learning Strands – Discovering Judaism, Exploring Migration History, Investigating the Holocaust and Revealing Arts. Guide your students through describing and analysing the significance of museum objects and what they tell us about Judaism, Jewish migration history and Jewish culture.
