Description Learners read a text about Merthyr and the Iron Age and use the information to draw a timeline to scale showing how Merthyr became the world’s top iron producer. Reading about the living conditions in the town, learners are introduced to cholera as a disease that quickly spreads in overcrowded conditions with poor sanitation. They interrogate numerical information about the outbreaks of cholera in Merthyr Tydfil and finally produce a public health poster that aims to reduce the spread of the disease. All Rich Activities are available to buy in English and Welsh.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

A range of engaging and exciting rich activities for use in the classroom to improve learners’ literacy and numeracy skills, as in the LNF. These activities will be posted to school on a memory stick. These can then be printed in-school when needed.

The activities also aim to develop learners’ problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills. Each rich activity has Teacher’s notes, to show how it links with the curriculum and the LNF, instructions as to how to prepare for and carry out the activity, and a grid demonstrating which elements/aspects of the LNF could be assessed. Each rich activity covers several teaching hours and is broken up into a number of tasks, to be used with pairs or groups of learners, with focus questions to elicit understanding.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Learners read a text about Merthyr and the Iron Age and use the information to draw a timeline to scale showing how Merthyr became the world’s top iron producer. Reading about the living conditions in the town, learners are introduced to cholera as a disease that quickly spreads in overcrowded conditions with poor sanitation. They interrogate numerical information about the outbreaks of cholera in Merthyr Tydfil and finally produce a public health poster that aims to reduce the spread of the disease.

LNF links: literacy and numeracy

Curriculum links: history.

How users/participants can evaluate success

The rich activities in themselves can be used to assess learners' current position and develop next steps for improvement. In addition, baseline test outcomes on Literacy and/or Numeracy can be compared with evidenced outcomes from the rich activity.  

Follow-up activities and support

Further rich activities are available to be used with learners from Foundation Phase to Key Stage 3. To view the full range of Rich Activities on offer visit www.thinklearnchallenge.com/pick-n-mix.html or contact [email protected] .
