Heinemann Video Gallery (Primary)
This invaluable resource offers hundreds of high quality, curriculum-linked video clips from the BBC Motion Gallery. Teachers have worked closely with researchers from the BBC to choose clips that best support the primarycurriculum, and to write usage notes to help planning and teaching. Ideal for whole class sessions, teachers say the video clips are a great way to start a topic and prompt lots of discussion.
This award-winning website offers cross-searchable access to 300,000 copyright-cleared images, sounds, movies and learning resources, drawn from prestigious organisations such as the British Library and the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as media archives such as Hulton Getty. Special packages of material have been created to support Early Learning, Primary and Special Educational Needs.
