History On The Hill 

History on the Hill - a Heritage Education programme designed specifically for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils, providing opportunities for the study of a series of local historical events which had international consequences and which still have resonances to this day.

 History On The Hill combines history, puppetry, drama.  Pupils take a tour of the permanent exhibition on The Flight of the Earls and the Plantation of Ulster (with study booklets for KS2 pupils/a Big Book for KS1 pupils).  There follows an exploration of the Hill of The O’Neill, then either a specially written puppet show, or a drama workshop, which continues the themes of the exhibition.  Time Steps will facilitate the drama aspects of this programme
