The Voyage

Service Pack: Available with USO

Subject: History

LGfL's first online game to support the History curriculum

The Voyage is LGfL’s first educational game, designed to help pupils understand the journey and impact of one of the great migrations in world history: the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the early 1800s, through the lens of ‘the Founders’ as they made their way across the world.

Spanning Key Stages 2 and 3, it covers the post-1066 period and meets the requirement to “know and understand the coherent, chronological narrative…of these islands”, as well as the cultural shaping of Britain by its Colonies and vice versa.

Divided into 6 units, each lesson has a solid historical context and uses a series of key questions to lead the teacher through the resources. The online Voyage game and maps are used to illustrate points and to test and develop historical skills and examine ideas, e.g. planning, statistics, management.

Pupils’ actions and experiences are recorded in a journal to help them explore what impact seemingly small decisions can have. Real-life documents from the National Archive have been collated to bring each step of The Voyage to life.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
