THE STONEY BYWELL PROJECT

This is a Rolling Role project involving schools, and a university, in different countries; linking children in primary schools (Foundation Stage and upwards), with students in secondary schools, and undergraduates.

We have created two fictional spa towns – Stoney Bywell, in the Peak District (UK), and Veralia in Spain.

The idea is that the towns are twinned – and both of them will celebrate their septuacentennial in 2022!

Classes and groups in different institutions are working on the project. They are uploading materials they create to the maps on this website. Groups will consult and use materials that other groups have produced - and so the project will “roll” from one group to another.

Stoney Bywell is loosely based on Buxton, and Veralia on Alange.
