Seaside Holidays Then and Now

By Clare Hibbert

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

A perfect introduction to the history and geography of life beside the seaside

Seaside Holidays Then and Now compares what it would have been like to go on holiday to the seaside in the past with modern seaside holidays today. Readers are encouraged to explore what has changed and what has stayed the same, including the places we stay, beach activities and the clothes we wear.

The Beside the Seaside series looks at specific aspects of daily life by the sea, whether examining plant and animal habitats, exploring the various jobs people do, looking at types of buildings and structures, or comparing a holiday by the sea in the past and present day.

An essential set of books for learning about all aspects of the seaside, and a perfect teaching tool for Key Stage 1.

It's Saturday morning and Jada and her brother Michael are watching TV. It's a beautiful day and Dad wants to get them outside so he invents 'The Garden Game'. Whoever notices the most interesting things is the winner. At first, they can't see anything. Just grass and flowers. But by looking slowly, more closely, and using all of their senses, they soon begin to notice lots of fascinating things. Small things they would not have noticed before seem so much bigger and interesting. And finally, their sense of smell leads them to the prize!The story shows how they use mindfulness - the ability to pay attention to the present moment with curiosity - to help them pay attention in everyday life.Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books. Readers are invited to PAUSE at various points in the story to notice their own present moment experience. The four stories in the 'Mindful Me' series explore how a mindful attitude to life can enhance enjoyment, promote a sense of calm and confidence, and provide young people with a 'friend for life'. Mindfulness techniques have been shown to help relieve stress and anxiety and improve health and mental well-being.The books can be used at home or in the classroom, for storytime or as part of the PSHCE curriculum.The other titles are:Breath by Breath: A Mindfulness Guide to Keeping CalmExploring Emotions: A Mindfulness Guide to Dealing with EmotionsSleep Easy: A Mindfulness Guide to Getting a Good Night's Sleep

Stone Age to Iron Age

Clare Hibbert
Authors:
Clare Hibbert

Find out all about the first Britons, nomadic hunter-gatherers who came from mainland Europe to settle in England bringing wooden spears, flint handaxes and animals with them. Stone Age to Iron Age tells the story of how these people settled and began farming the land. They built villages of timber and stone houses such as Skara Brae on Orkney. Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous monument of this period, a technological marvel of the time built by raising over 80 blue stones to create the 'henge'. The Bronze Age bought with it metalworking using copper, tin and gold to make tools and beautiful everyday objects. The Iron Age was known for its hill forts, farming and art and culture. Contains maps, paintings, artefacts and photographs to show how early Britons lived. Ideally suited for readers age 8+ or teachers who are looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.
