We are a team of Schools Support Officers who work
with pupils when they visit Museum
sites. We teach across the age range,
from 4 years - 18 years. All our
teaching sessions are closely linked to the
curriculum and to schools’ needs.
Children can take part in role-play,
drama, historical investigation and
discovery, critical studies and art
activities, science explorations,
maths workshops and much, much more!
We write information for teachers
about the Museums and their collections,
and produce plenty of activity
sheets and worksheets for pupils
to give a structure and curriculum
focus to their visit. These resources
can be downloaded from the 'Printable
on this website.
We also create a variety of on-line interactive resources to support
the curriculum and teaching across
the museums. These learning resources
can be found on the e-learning
Teachers can attend INSET courses
focus on a particular subject,
curriculum area, exhibition, or
Key Stage relevance.
We run a Loans Service
which has over 200 boxes of objects,
from Ancient Egyptian artefacts
to zoological specimens. Teachers
can borrow loans to use in the
classroom for a half-term.
