Bishop’s Waltham Housing Research Project:

22 June 2022 (by Darren Campbell (darrencampbell))

All pupils at BWJS participated in a research project today alongside members of Bishop’s Waltham Oral History Group.

The research focused on building up a graphical representation of the town’s development – dating from Medieval time. This involved identifying the ages of all the dwellings in and around the Bishop’s Waltham area.

Pupils had the opportunity to locate their home on the map, learn about the age (time era) the property was built and any historical significance of the road name.

They then placed an corresponding colured sticker onto the large map.

As the day progressed, the older pupils started to interpret the data represented on the map.

We look forward to seeing the outcomes of the research project.
