Learning Resources for KS2 Pupils

Stained Glass Window from Welton Church

This resource is designed to support teachers and young people wishing to find out more about the impact of war on their local community through a study that begins with war memorials.

The learning outcomes will include:

  • To be able to explain what a war memorial is
  • To know that there are different types of war memorial
  • To know where the local war memorial is
  • To know why war memorials were, and continue to be important to communities
  • To develop research skills

The activities are hands on and can be used to explore:

War memorials in Lincolnshire

  • What are war memorials?
  • How do communities in Lincolnshire remember sacrifice?

Uncovering the human stories behind war memorials

  • On individuals and communities
  • Exploring the impact of global events on local communities.

Keeping history alive

  • Call to action to encourage young people to research local war memorials and contribute to the Lincolnshire Remembrance Project.

The resources are for activities which have curriculum links for Literacy, History and ICT.

At Key Stage 2 these sessions should be particularly helpful in helping to develop an understanding of

  • Chronology
  • British, local and world history and how the three relate to create a clear narrative.
  • Historical terms
  • Historically valid questions.

OPEM exhibition at The Collection

28 January - 2 May 2017

Exhibition Opening Times: 10:00am - 4:00pm


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.
