Village Uncovered – Marton KS2

A history, drama and art project

This resource was created in collaboration with arts and heritage officers at West Lindsey District Council Lincolnshire County Council and is intended to help teachers explore local and national history with the help of drama and art.

In Lincolnshire you can also search the HER records on-line by logging on to the Heritage Gateway at www.heritagegateway.org.uk Contact details of other HERs can also be found on the Heritage Gateway.

Lincs to the Past is a website where not only HER records can be searched, but also those of the Lincolnshire Archives, Museums and Library non-fiction catalogue are available. There are also further learning packages available.

Drama and art can be used in very interesting and innovative ways to interpret any aspect of heritage very effectively, particularly in schools. These media allow the children to learn about heritage through the research they carry out towards the final products, and through role play they may feel empathy with people from the past. They will also learn how to communicate this to an audience in engaging ways. This package will focus on Romans in Marton, and for pupils at Key Stage 2, but the principles could be applied far more widely.

There are many aspects of the National Curriculum with which this pack could help with the teaching of Key Stage 2, in particular:

Art and design:
All aspects of the Curriculum

Design and Technology:
1. Developing, planning and communicating ideas
2. Working with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products

3. Group discussions and interaction
4. Drama

3. Knowledge and understanding of places

All aspects of the Curriculum

OPEM 4 is the fourth biennial open exhibition hosted by The Collection and Usher Gallery, and will showcase the work of local and regional artists who were chosen by a pair of industry experts (writer/curator Elinor Morgan and artist Brian Griffiths) based on the quality and originality of their work. Hundreds of artists from around Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and more entered into the competition, hoping to have their work featured centre-stage at a professional art exhibition.

The winning artists are:

• Reece Straw

• Jake Kent

• Stephanie Douet

• Jake Moore

• Selina Mosinski

• Matthew Chesney

• Ellen Brady

• Colette Griffin

This will be the first time some of these artists have exhibited with a professional institution. By winning the competition these artists will each receive money and supplies to fund the creation of an all-new original piece of work for this particular show. Other prizes include a £3000 purchasing/commissioning prize which has been sponsored by the Heslam Trust, while another artist will receive their own solo exhibition in The Usher Gallery.
