The Mount learning project

Introducing the workshops

On this website, you can find schemes of work, activities, and resources designed to help teachers in Primary and Secondary schools and their students to reconnect with Fleetwood’s heritage and think of new ways to revive and celebrate it.

We have provided two creative day long workshops designed to inspire children in Key Stage 2, and two day long workshops for Key Stage 3 students. The workshops are free to download, and are fully prepared to provide all the resources needed for teachers to support their students to learn about Fleetwood’s heritage, town planning and architecture. The workshops are designed to support the school curriculum.

Why have these workshops been developed?

Wyre Council was awarded a £2 million ‘Parks for People’ grant by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund in 2018 to continue its work to revive the Mount Pavilion and Gardens in Fleetwood. The seaward side was restored in 2017 thanks to a £1million personal donation from Mrs Doreen Lofthouse.

This amazing heritage is a rich learning resources for schools and local young people and has inspired the development of these resources.

These resources have been developed by PLACED on behalf of Wyre Council. PLACED is a social enterprise delivering creative education and engagement programmes about the built environment across the Northwest.
