LincsAboutTown Learning Resources

There are six separate resources designed to be used either as generic background information or for activities with specific age groups. The resources offer step-by-step guidance but we hope teachers will tailor the activities to meet the needs of the young people they teach.

Background information and creative ideas

  • Background Information (sharing the learning from and skills needed by the Extensive Urban Survey )

  • Lincolnshire Through Time (a brief overivew of life in Lincolnshire at historic periods most commonly taught in schools with activity ideas, what to look for, where to look and further resources)

  • Creative Learning and Arts Award (Creative ideas that support Arts Award Discover and Explore).

  • Careers in Heritage Factsheet 

We have also provided PowerPoints that teachers may find helpful. These are: 

  • Bronze- Age-Grantham.ppt

  • Roman-Grantham.ppt 

  • Thimbleby.ppt
