As part of their whole school local heritage project, William Patten Primary in Stoke Newington, Hackney, invited past pupils back to school and asked them about their own experiences of school life. Their memories begin in the early 1920s with 104 year old Kathleen Housden and cover everything from their favourite teacher to school dinners.
In this film pupils from Wolborough C of E Primary School in Newton Abbot watch a re-enactment of a speech delivered by Sylvia and Emmeline Pankhurst, and find out about a riot against the suffragettes in 1908.
In this film Year 7 pupils from St John's School and Sixth Form College in Bishop Aukland carry out a local heritage study of the streets around their school. They learn about the changes in the built environment and about a local apprentice who lived in a Victorian terrace nearby, from his great-granddaughter. Through research and oral history they find out about his life and work in the local rail repair factory, Lingford and Gardiner, and the impact the railway had on the local area.
