Teachers/Leaders Notes

Education pack cover

   The Caring for God’s Acre Education Pack is suitable for children up to the age of about eleven. It is aimed at teachers of Early Years and Primary aged children. It includes Welsh and English curriculum links. Many of the activities are also suitable for youth clubs including Sunday Schools and Scouting and Guiding groups (badges and challenges are listed). Burial grounds are excellent places to undertake the John Muir Award scheme and an application form is included for this.               

Based around five themes there are a wealth of activities and learning ideas.

The five themes are:


    • Precious Places
    • What’s the Story?
    • Marvellous Monuments
    • Wonderful Wildlife
    • Art and Architecture


 The education pack has been split into 3 parts:

    • Teacher / Leaders notes (Titled The Churchyard and Burial Ground Education Pack)
    • Activity Sheets
    • Writing Frames

Please start by looking at the Teachers/Leaders Notes document, which will give background to burial ground visits and outline the various activities for each of the themes. Resources needed for each activity are clearly listed. These will often include the Activity Sheets.

Use the Writing Frames for children’s work back at school and for making posters and advertising events.
