New Project: Pontypool Townscape Heritage Initiative

With a new project for the Pontypool Townscape Heritage Initiative we are taking educational interpretation online.

We will be developing a range of online games and activities for use in schools to support Key Stage 2. The games will help children learn more about the history of Pontypool, its architecture and its traditional trades.

They will include a jigsaw puzzle style game, a timeline of the town’s history, and an activity to design a piece of Japanware, a style of finish that imitates the lacquered effect of oriental items and for which Pontypool is renowned.

Watch this space for more details as this project develops.
