Thirty Y5 and Y6 pupils at William Stukeley Church of England Primary School took part in a Heritage Skills Workshop, led by Jim Snee from Heritage Lincolnshire. The three day event began at the Chapels, whsre pupils learnt about the history of them and studied the architecture and why buildings change and can decay over time.
Whilst at the Chapels they also visited a number of gravestones and learnt about the lives of some of the people buried in the cemetery.
They were fascinated to discover ‘Tommy’ the statuette standing guard over WW1 graves.
Back at school they enjoyed some interesting discussions about why heritage should be respected and restored, but finding new ways of using the buildings. In small groups they created mind maps for their ideas which will go on display in the Chapels.
