‘Norfolk Trail Heritage Rangers’ was an exciting schools project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund through their ‘Young Roots’ scheme. Groups of students from Cromer Academy and Framingham Earl High School researched the history and wildlife that can be discovered on their local Trail, and developed activities that would teach younger children about it whilst having fun.
Advice and support was available from a number of organisations that have expertise in heritage interpretation to young people, such as Norfolk Museum Service and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
During the project, the young people involved came up with some great ideas, which they tried out on classes from their local primary schools. The Cromer Academy students ran four different activities close to the Norfolk Coast Path in Cromer (near the lighthouse), while the Framingham Earl High School group developed a new circular walk and activity booklet to go with it for the Boudicca Way at Shotesham.
Download step by step guidance notes for group leaders – the activities are designed for groups of young people of about nine to eleven years old. Parents can also try out the activities with their families - a walk on a trail can be even more fun finding out about its wildlife and history.
Have fun trying out the activities with your school group or families.
