Education Resources

hwh_education_resourcesHistorical character videos, activity cards for use as part of outdoor learning, map sets and classroom activity sheets are just some of the resources we have created to help schools use their local countryside in national curriculum work.

The resources listed on this page are available to all schools within and around the High Weald. If you have joined the High Weald Hero Partnership as a High Weald Hero School we will have supplied school-specific map sets and may also have worked with you to produce other school-specific educational material e.g. Welly walks You will find these resources on your school's page on this site.

A pdf High Weald Hero Topic Web (240 KB)  is also available for further ideas on linking your lessons to the High Weald.
