In a collaboration with Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children’s Books, university students and primary school children were brought together through methods of intergenerational practice (IGP). Across consecutive academic years, the project has seen 136 students embark on an exploration of geographies of gender and generation with 120 primary school children. By utilising creative learning in teaching the project addresses threshold concepts in understanding, in this case, IGP (methods of intentional age integration). The purpose of this paper is to analyse the promotion of IGP through emergent critical reflections. These reflections are situated within academic debate on the use of IGP in children’s and young people’s geographies.
