Funded by Heritage Lottery, we offer a range of fun primary teaching resources that you can download for free! Developed by a local primary school teacher to assist with primary history and local history teaching in KS1 and KS2, our teaching resources and lesson plans are the perfect way to prepare for a visit to Hoghton, continue learning after your trip, or just experience the fascinating history of Hoghton Tower without leaving your classroom.
The plans can be used on their own as complete modules or as individual lesson plans to mix in with your existing history planning. With a mixture of slideshows, activities and information sheets available, our resources will encourage your class to question the past and discover how it has shaped the future.
Using Hoghton Tower as a ‘Local History Case Study’, explore it’s significant impact of the local community and discover how the local area has been influenced and shaped by the generations of people that have lived and worked at this historic location since the original tower was first built..
In addition to our teaching resources, our outreach programme allows Hoghton Tower’s history to come to life in your classroom! Our talented team of guides will happily visit your school to offer a further insight into our fascinating history, whether that’s delivering a presentation during an assembly or a smaller class session.
