A series of 10 walks based loosely on the popular game Monopoly. With the streets and stations of this classic board game as our inspiration we will discover a number of London locations while hopefully avoiding Jail!' First session will meet in The Refectory, Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge .
What can students expect?
Learn about the historical landmarks and events associated with the area, visit and discuss buildings/ architecture, learn about key people and events. Trace the relationship between the area today and the past, be able to pass this knowledge and understanding onto others.
Each walk lasts 2 hours, departing from an agreed meeting point and following a planned route that features the salient points of the session's theme. The tutor will impart information orally and will support learning with written resources available either on the day or via the College's Intranet. While the walks are not usually physically challenging, each route may include urban and/or rural roads and will take place in all weathers (except in extreme conditions, when it may be necessary to make alternative arrangements).
Late starters allowed?
Literacy, Language and Numeracy skills required
English language and literacy sufficient to read and understand key architectural and historical common words (not specialist) and Numeracy sufficient to recognise key historical data and figures.
This is a non-accredited course. You will be assessed informally by your tutor during class activities. There will be regular opportunities to review your progress.
