Salve! Welcome to the WCN Roman Coventry and Warwickshire Project!
This project aims to bring Coventry and Warwickshire's Roman past to every school and schoolchild in Coventry and beyond. Inspired by Coventry City of Culture 2021, our aim is to make our local Coventry and Warwickshire schools the most culturally enriched in the country, offering equal opportunities to all pupils irrespective of background or ability. You can learn about the background of the project here.
This project brings together staff and students from the University of Warwick with local schools and Museums to create a set of resources for the teaching of Ancient History at KS2 and KS3. If you would like to find out more about the project and how your school can sign up, please do get in touch by emailing Dr Paul Grigsby at email@example.com
Sign up for Extra Material, Support and other Special Opportunities
Those who sign up to the project will have full access to the following:
- A complete suite of downloadable teaching materials based on these resources
- Travelling Museum 'lessons-in-boxes', which can be loaned to schools or led by our Warwick Classics students/staff. These include:
- One-to-one advice on using these resources in the Classroom as well as advice on introducing more of the ancient world onto your curriculum.
- Access to special events and CPDs
So join us and discover Coventry's amazing and unique Roman past. All that we ask is a little feedback on how you are using the resources in class. To access these extras, please email Dr Paul Grigsby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using this Project in the Classroom
To complement this project we have developed a suite of Teacher Resources to help with the teaching of Rome and Romans at KS2 and KS3 and to introduce Roman Coventry and Warwickshire as part of enrichment sessions or extracurricular clubs. You can sample some of these resources below. To access all resources, sign up to the Project by contacting Dr Paul Grigsby at email@example.com.
The Roman Coventry and Warwickshire Project is led by Dr Paul Grigsby of the Department of Classics and Ancient History here at the University of Warwick, where his role is to run the Warwick Classics Network alongside Prof. Michael Scott.
