Century of Change
Century of Change explores the history and geography of Sherwood Forest leading up to 1850 and ending at 1950.
Through partnership working, the project has created learning resources to support a local history curriculum, a Century of Change for primary schools.
The resources cover five themes:-
- Impact of War
- Future Communities.
The five themes focus on different activities that have impacted the Sherwood Forest area. Each theme has been developed in collaboration with local heritage experts. The resources support children and young people to develop skills in research and communication used by historians, archaeologists and geographers. Teachers can choose which elements to teach.
Schools are provided with learning resources that include:
- Research into the theme, including maps, photographs and other pertinent documents
- Activities for the students to complete
- Integrated school visits
- Integrated school talks
The aim of the learning resources is to provide the school with all of the information as well as the activities needed to deliver the research on the particular theme. The trips and talks will be complementary to the themes and will offer the students the opportunity to leave the classroom and gain an enriching experience.
We’ve partnered with Innovate Educate Ltd to deliver Century of Change. They have set up a project website where you can find out more.
