Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this project looks at the history of playground games in Barking & Dagenham. Between September and December 2013 we ran weekly workshops in Dagenham Library for children aged 5-10 years and their parents, finding out more about playground games and how to play them. In the Spring Term we teamed up with Eastside Community Heritage to deliver a series of workshops in two local primary schools, Hunters Hall Primary (Dagenham) and Manor Juniors (Barking). After a couple of sessions developing their archival and oral history interviewing skills, the children invited family and friends into the school to be interviewed about their favourite playground games. We made a short film about the project, and have completed learning packs for schools which are now available. To request a pack or the film email firstname.lastname@example.org .
