Lee then and now

This half term, Year 6 have been learning about local history. Today we looked at maps from the 1800s, showing how railway changed Lee dramatically. It was great to be able to zoom in on the iPads to really explore the maps.

We found the old school (National School) and discovered that there was also an Infant school in what is now the football cage! Other things we discovered include Dacre Park used to be called Turner’s Road.

We used our knowledge of the history of Lee so far to create our own audio guide timelines, using Keynote on the iPads.
