As part of the Downs 150 project Local Learning went to the Downs with children from Burnbush Primary School, Stockwood and Christ Church Primary School, Clifton. Together with a local storyteller, Martin Maudsley, the children explored the history and landscape of the Downs.

When they returned to their classrooms the children created their own boardgames that demonstrated their learning and the stories they had heard.

Local Learning used elements of all these games to create two boardgames; one exploring the Iron-age hillfort on Clifton Down, the other a journey around the landscape of Durdham Down. The children’s ideas directly informed the design and content of each game.
