The Day the World Got Smaller
The Day the World Got Smaller is a free online learning resource for primary schools celebrating the history of the Liverpool to Manchester railway.
This brand new resource aims to inspire Key Stage 2 pupils to discover aspects of British and world history that are reflected in their local community, and question the impact of the railways on society today.
Six new commissioned artworks have been created in collaboration with children from local primary schools in Liverpool. Each artwork has been the result of a participatory programme of workshops, collective research, heritage visits and a shared process of interpretation between artists and children.
