Educational Resources

To capture the heritage uncovered from AMP Kingston and inspire the next generation, an Educational Resource Pack was created. This toolkit has been predominantly designed for use by KS2 teachers and those working in a youth work setting, but should prove interesting reading to anybody with an interest in Kingston-upon-Thames’ rich musical heritage. The pack is free to use and you can download it below.

You can also download the toolkit from our previous project Kingston RPM: Records, People & Music, which focused on Kingston’s musical heritage from the 1940s-1970s. This toolkit was designed for KS3 to KS4.

Both toolkits provide a brief overview of the three key themes of the projects, as well as accompanying curriculum-focused activities to complete with your group.
