BIRTHPLACE OF THE BEATLES


Free Schools Pack For download

LIVERPOOL CELEBRATES THE LIFE OF JOHN LENNON

With so many events coming up to celebrate the life of one of Liverpool’s most famous sons, it is a good opportunity for schools to get involved and look closer at the life of one of The Beatles and to link it to the curriculum.


To help schools join in, I have prepared a selection of ideas and resources for teachers, which are linked to the book that I have written, called “Liddypool: Birthplace of The Beatles”, the definitive Beatles book on Liverpool and Merseyside.


There are free resources, including curriculum-based ideas, stories and excerpts from “Liddypool”.


You can purchase a copy of “Liddypool” to help with your research, if you would like to, at a cost of £35 including free postage. You can also purchase that from www.liddypool.com. This is purely optional.


My Background

I am Chair of Governors at Dovedale Junior School, and these ideas and suggestions are based on events, lessons and assemblies that have been undertaken at Dovedale, with the Creative TLR team having integrated them into the curriculum, and which the children and teachers thoroughly enjoyed.
