Key Stage 2 A local history study

Historic public parks offer teachers a fascinating subject for a Local Study investigation in history.  They provide tangible evidence of the lives of past communities; they encapsulate the values and tastes of the time; are easily accessible; and are familiar places to children.

They will also enable you to develop valuable research and fieldwork skills.
