Oughterside Quest

Oughterside Primary School in Cumbria UK have created a Quest around their village.  

First they explored the history of the landscape and found much of it is reclaimed land from old coal mines.  Many of the houses were built originally for coal miners to live in and they talked to older people in the village who could remember what it used to be like.They explored the flowers that grow on the verges and fields and drew a flower guide as part of the Quest.  They made maps and wrote all the clues.  As a guide they asked Rabbit to help as there are many rabbits who enjoy the flowers in the fields.  

They left the Quest out all summer for local people and visitors to explore. 

Comment from the school: ‘We’ve had great fun making it and tons of learning!’ Thank you Jachym for showing us how to make a Quest!
