*Please Note: While we work on the development of the new Museum our school Learning and Outreach service will be temporarily suspended until January 2020. We will honour any current bookings but will not take any more in 2019.
During this time we will be developing new primary and secondary workshops and are looking for partners in local schools to help us create and trial them. If you are interested in supporting us at this exciting time, please get in touch. Thank you, David Birks, Learning and Outreach Officer.
We offer a wide range of KS1 and KS2 workshops covering 2000 years of British history including Romans, Normans, Tudors, Victorian and C20th life as well as other topics such as Textiles and Weaving, Houses and Homes and Toys and Games, and the history workshops can easily be given a Local History focus. Our workshops feature object handling, dressing up, exploring Museum displays, hands-on activities, game playing and crafts and they all provide a fun, challenging and exciting learning experience. They can easily be adapted as outreach sessions.
We have extensive handling collections and can put together bespoke workshops suitable for KS3 and KS4 classes, and we can accommodate Home School groups in the Museum. We also have lots of experience adapting and developing workshops for SEN groups. Below we outline a variety of our sample workshops, but please contact us if you would like to discuss a tailored session.
