Caring for God’s Acre has launched its new Education pack to support the exploration of burial grounds of all kinds such as old churchyards, Victorian cemeteries, cemeteries of different faiths, chapel yards and more recent burial grounds.
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund this new pack comprises five topics: –
What’s the Story?
Art and Architecture
Each of these topics has several activities and ideas covering a range of subjects relevant to learning in key stages 1 and 2 and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). There are notes for Teachers and a pack of photographs and worksheets or templates to support the activities.
Guiding and scouting groups are supported with activities, challenges and ideas for work towards various badges. The pack is also designed to help with outdoor learning such as the John Muir Award.
