Project Objective

Provide an opportunity for learners to experience lessons outside of the classroom by facilitating field trips to the nearby Anglo-Zulu war battlefield sites, a topic covered in the school curriculum.

About the project

From 2017-2019, UWE Bristol History BA students, Secondary History and Geography PGCE students worked with teachers from Phendukani High School to facilitate field trips for learners to Anglo-Zulu battlefield sites, a topic covered within their school curriculum. By collaborating with local teachers, and with support from a UWE Bristol humanities education academic, the students helped to tell stories from the war from the perspectives of the Zulu Nation.

Follow-up workshops back at school enabled learners to engage in discussion, role play and appreciation of artefacts, developing their awareness of regional histories and the tourism interest it generates. This collaboration benefitted everyone involved, the learners, local teachers and UWE students.
