New Town Workshop
New Town developments of Hemel Hempstead
Divided into three groups, with a volunteer at each group, the class will be able to explore all three of the following sessions:
- Looking at maps of Hemel Hempstead, the pupils can witness the changes through time.
- Learn from the accounts from people who moved in the New Town. This includes watching a 3 min film showing oral histories being reenacted in an animation.
- A craft activity – we begin this group activity discussing what you would need in a new town. Then the pupils create a New Town mural of their own New Town.
