Documenting our Past

Led Sessions at the Hull History Centre

Documenting our Past (Available in KS2 and KS3 versions)


2 hour led session at Hull History Centre (from January 2010)


Curriculum Links: History, Geography, Citizenship, Literacy


Explore a timeline of Hull from its origins as Wyke upon Hull to the Blitz and beyond through a variety of activities designed to improve key skills and support the National Curriculum. Using Hull’s unique archival and local studies collections, participants will use communication, independent enquiry, map reading, teamwork, creative thinking, reflective learning and many more skills to problem solve historical dilemmas.

  • Create a charter of rights and responsibilities for modern Hull
  • Become Cartographers to predict and map out Hull’s growth
  • Become ‘Enumerators’ to collect census information from your ‘Victorian’ classmates
  • Act as Historians to discover and present what life was like for children in Hull during the war
  • Collect information from our resources together into a timeline of Hull

Cost: Free introductory sessions until January 2010.

We are also working on new sessions to be launched in 2010. If you have any suggestions about what you would like to see please contact us.
