DoverPark2sThere are plenty of opportunities for using Ryde Cemetery to cover all aspects of the Primary Curriculum.

Group Work

When working with groups of children it is worthwhile naming each group after a particular person buried within the cemetery and with an interesting tomb/memorial and life story. Each group then has the extra activity of finding the grave of the person their group is named after and can do further internet research on this person afterwards. See links to information cards on suggested names.
