    • Hi TraceyLatham75,
      I am really sorry to hear about this mistake, and I apologise if it has caused you any trouble. I'll ask our resource team to look into this as soon as possible! :)

    • Hi TraceyLatham75,
      I have just taken a look at this and compared it to a map of Great Britain and it looks like they are placed in the correct area. In what way do you think they are in the wrong place? Where do you think they should be on the map? Thank you :)

    • Hi, They should be approximately 90 miles further north! You have positioned Stockton where Goole is and Darlington where Pontefract is. You have placed them by the Humber Estuary rather than the River Tees. I hope that helps!

PlanIt - History LKS2 - The Railways Lesson 3: The Growth of Britain's Railways Lesson Pack

PlanIt - History LKS2 - The Railways Lesson 3: The Growth of Britain's Railways Lesson Pack - In this lesson the children explore how Britain's railway network expanded significantly to cover much of the country. They learn about privatisation, nationalisation, the 'big four' railway companies which emerged and the formation of British Rail. The children annotate maps of Britain to show the routes of some of the main railway lines and order events on a timeline to detail the changes and growth of the railway network.
