Explore how the movement of people to, from and around the UK has shaped our communities, customs and cultural identity – from early invaders to present day immigration. Examining aspects of history, geography and citizenship, this resource will also enable you to embed community cohesion into your curriculum in a meaningful way.

This Whiteboard Active resource provides a wealth of stimulating resources, video and planning support all in one place. It uses an enquiry-led approach, with exciting BBC video that challenges pupils to think about, talk about and investigate how communities are formed and change.
