Year 3 and 4 students from West Town Primary School partnered with Peterborough Cathedral to construct a programme of work which complemented and enhanced the National Curriculum, using a locally specific context. 

This project aimed to create learning experiences that were engaging for children from all backgrounds. Increase children's understanding of and attachment to the place where they live while embedding schools more deeply within their communities and localities.

Year 3 and 4 students from West Town Primary School partnered with Peterborough Cathedral to construct a programme of work which complemented and enhanced the National Curriculum, using a locally specific context. As a real world frame for the project, the Year 3 and 4 students were commissioned by the Cathedral’s head of Visits, Education and Heritage to make a display for the newly built Education Centre, aimed at other visiting children, about the Cathedral and its Tudor history.

The report recommends the following:

  • The school maintains its link with the cathedral. 

  • The cathedral should work with more schools in the future.
