Teachers and parents can now download and share for free online Heritage Learning Resource Packs from the Darlington Hippodrome website. The packs include whiteboard slides, activity sheets, teacher notes and a wealth of resources within four subject areas: Pepi and his Palaces of Variety, Darlington Hippodrome, Pantomime Magic and Around the Hippodrome – A Local Study.

Each subject area has four sets of information which can be downloaded and used together or individually – Teacher Notes, Read and Explain, PowerPoint Slides and Resource Folders.

The Teacher Notes are a series of PDF documents aimed at giving an outline of the subject area and summarising the learning objectives for the activities. The Read and Explain documents are sheets about key themes or characters in the theatre’s history which are explored in the four subject areas. The PowerPoint slides feature literacy, numeracy and comprehension-based activities and the Resource Folders contain a mix of templates, images and maps to aid further engagement within activities.

The Heritage Learning Resource Packs can be downloaded for free from the Take Part section of the Darlington Hippodrome website.
