HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT – Educational resources for Key Stages 1 & 2

Houses of Parliament

– Educational resources for Key Stages 1 & 2

Working closely with the Learning Projects and Content team at the Houses of Parliament we designed and produced a storybook for Key Stage 1 children, and a workbook with accompanying teachers notes and activity sheets for Key Stage 2 children. Both publications were targeted specifically to introduce, educate and motivate children about Parliament and the different areas, people and traditions within it and look at how they can get involved and have their say.

As a full book packaging project we managed the whole process from curriculum planning, writing, copy editing and proof reading along with artwork commissioning and image sourcing right through to the concept design and implementation. To ensure we were pitching the books at the right levels and that teachers were on board with our objectives and approach we undertook two waves of user testing throughout the development of the publications. The books were greatly received and the feedback was extremely positive.

Once the English versions were completed we then translated both manuscripts to Welsh and adapted the layouts to accommodate dual language (Welsh/English) copy, managing all aspects of the process.
