English Heritage launch Heritage booklet for key stage 2 and 3

"Heritage" can be a weasel word, indicating antiquarian sentimentality. English Heritage tries to give its educational materials more positive connotations. Its new 36-page booklet for key stage 2 and 3 teachers outlines ways in which the built environment can stimulate children's understanding. Examples range from cathedrals and castles to schools and housing estates. Activities aim t exercise the imagination and develop skills of hand and eye. The pictures, although small, are clear enough to be used with adult guidance.
