Immerse yourself in Marton’s history. A study in time from the Domesday Book through to the present day. Prepare to be amazed at the extraordinary history of this beautiful park through a series of fast paced activities including looking for clues, identifying mystery objects and looking closely at maps and images from days gone by.

This is an outdoor workshop and run jointly with the Stewart Park Team from Askham Bryan College. In order for children to see features for themselves they will need to spend time outdoors. Please ensure all children come suitably dressed for this workshop.

Key learning outcomes:

Students will find out about significant people, places and events in their own locality. They will be able to explore how places have changed over time and see first-hand how we can find out about the past by looking at the built environment around us.

Main learning approaches:

Enquiry-based learning
Active learning
