The Learning Materials and Learning Map provide everything that primary school pupils and teachers need to be inspired to learn outside the classroom in the Lower Severn Vale. These free resources will engage students in their local environment and allow them to enjoy exploring and investigating A Forgotten Landscape.
Culture Force worked with teachers and pupils from Manorbrook Primary School (Thornbury), Crossways School (Thornbury), Our Lady of the Rosary School (Lawrence Weston), St Peter’s School (Pilning) and Woodstock Special School (Henbury) to produce and test a range of materials for several projects.
Our teachers’ forum incorporated familiarisation with the area and free professional development with networking and opportunities for school exchange.
In addition to this work we also collated the “best of the rest” – additional local resources developed by other projects such as the Woodwell Journal and Know Your Place.
You can find an overview of what’s available in our leaflet.
The resources aim to develop a wide range of knowledge, skills and understanding, from history to literacy to science.
They are all categorised into one of five themes:
The Learning Materials section contains various activities that can be undertaken in and out of the classroom.
The Learning Map points to specific locations within A Forgotten Landscape with ideas of how to relate a visit there back to the curriculum.
