Marginalised Voices in Sheffield’s History

Women of Steel

This pilot project involves developing curriculum-linked ideas for a Y7 project focused on bringing the history curriculum to life.  History teachers at Parkwood E-Act Academy asked us to help them tell the stories their young people in Y7 need to hear for their curriculum AND inspire them by making the stories relevant to them as a diverse, multicultural group.  

Create Sheffield and Sheffield Museums are working together on this project because the pilot is linked to the Outside Narration exhibition at Sheffield’s Graves Gallery (until Dec 2023), and is focused on including forgotten, ignored and marginalised voices in the history we teach. 

History teachers from across the city are coming together to co-create a new curriculum resource for Y7s, ready for trial in classrooms in Autumn 1, 2023 – get in touch if you want more details.
