Free resource website - - Newcastle University

Hi everyone,

A colleague from Newcastle University Oral History Unit and I recently developed a website, thanks to some funding from the Catherine Cookson Foundation. The site is on the topic of shipbuilding in the North East of England, its history and its legacy. In order to make the content most relevant and useful we have generated educational resources to accompany the content on the website, aimed at English, Drama, History and Geography teachers.

Please visit the site and check out the resources in the 'Find Out More' section. You can also request hard copies of the resources and pass this info on to any colleagues who may be interested (or have a personal connection to shipbuilding).

Any questions, please get in touch via

Kindest regards,

Rosie (an English teacher at a Secondary school!)
