The Primary Schools Learning Pack provides everything that students 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.
Designed for teachers, we have commissioned Culture Force to develop sustainable educational resources for primary schools. These will be available free of charge and we encourage feedback from you. This primary school pack is being developed in collaboration with teachers over the life of the project: resources will appear here as they are generated so watch this space!
Interpreting the local landscape and its heritage will bring the Severn Vale Levels to life and enhance the curriculum. The resources have a particular emphasis on learning outside the classroom and are based around five themes developed with teachers. Local teachers are actively involved in our teachers forum, which incorporates familiarisation with the area and free professional development with networking and opportunities for school exchange.
We are engaging local schools, teachers, parents and children to participate in their local heritage. Young people are developing a greater appreciation of the cultural and natural landscape in which they live. Why not visit our learning map for inspiration for your next adventure?
