Thinking New Towns - Stevenage

What was the experience and thoughts of the people in Stevenage in the 50s and 60s when the new town was built and changed the old market town dramatically?

Stevenage Museum

We have created 3 free educational packs to use in schools and for people to read and reflect on the origin of the new towns and the development of each of the Hertfordshire new towns.

There is a separate pack for Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead and for Hatfield. They are free to download and can be used in full or as excerpts.

In all there are over 100 pages of learning resources.

Activities in the education packs are great for history, geography or PSHE┬áin KS2 – KS3, or can be used in English – looking at interview technique in relation to┬árecording oral history interviews and in art and design as a part of the post war curriculum.

We hope it will enrich your knowledge about town if you are a school student, teacher, parent or just an other resident interested in your town.
