‘Shape of You’ – Thank you Louie B!

Thank you to Louie B in 7 Explorer who chose the song ‘Shape of You’ by Ed Sheeran for an activity that opened our lesson today.

Students had to link the lyrics to what we are studying: ‘What does the community of Doncaster owe to the railway?’ It is an activity where students need to think really carefully about what the lyrics could mean within the context of what they are learning about.

Both myself and Miss Duffield were amazed with the connections that they made. Links to the lyrics revolved around previous studies around source work, economic and social benefits, indirect and direct employment, specific jobs, attitudes at the time and many more.

See if you can link the lyrics to Doncaster’s past!
