The three example story creation games in this section have all been successfully used to reinforce learning about a class topic as well as playing their part in the English curriculum. The examples used are a Victorian seaside resort, a local country house and a Tudor castle, but the same method can easily be applied to a hill fort, a coal mine, the street layout around the school or any other physical area or feature being studied. The class design the game board and cards as they learn more about the topic being studied, adding extra details as their knowledge increases.
