Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council ‘Stay Home Stories’ has three interconnected strands: Documenting Home, Practising Home, and Mapping Home.
The RGS-IBG is working with Queen Mary University of London, University of Liverpool and National Museums Liverpool on the Mapping Home strand which is encouraging children to map and record their experiences of home during the COVID-19 crisis.
For the Mapping Home strand pupils across Key Stages 2-4 are being invited to create and submit a map of their home. Your pupils’ maps will help us gain a better understanding of how children and young people’s experience of the home space may have changed during the COVID-19 restrictions, while at the same time helping to develop mapping skills and encouraging engagement with a sense of place.
Over the summer months the Stay Home Stories partners will select maps for an online gallery of submissions.
Getting started couldn’t be easier. There are packs of materials for primary and secondary schools to support teachers and their pupils available in the downloads box. Please read the accompany documents carefully before submitting any documents using the upload link that follows. Maps can be drawn in class or as homework and then uploaded with the headteacher's consent form here. We look forward to seeing your pupils' creativity and sharing them in the online exhibition. If you have got any questions please do contact us on Jacqueline.firstname.lastname@example.org or email email@example.com
In addition, schools may be also interested in taking forward their work on Stay Home within the RGS’s annual Young Geographer of the Year competition.
