Creature crawls, curriculum changes and new education spaces: exciting times ahead for education at the John Moore Museum
New National Curriculum changes
Love coming to us but not sure where the Tudor workshops fit with the new curriculum? From September 2014 the Tudors can continue to be taught as part of the Local History section, so there’s no need to change anything!
Science Day: Fit for life
This brand new science-themed day consists of three exciting workshops which teach pupils about living things and habitats. Using the Natural History collection, as well as the Secret Garden, pupils will take part in a series of hands-on activities including drawing and observation, creature crawls and museum trails.
Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are offering FREE school places on either of our two new workshops: Saving historic buildings – a local history project and Churches, chapels and code-breaking. Offer will end July 2014 or when all places have been filled.
A new education space?
We are currently applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop the Old Baptist Chapel, a newly acquired building located across the road from the museum, as an education centre for school groups. From new activities to improved facilities, we are really excited about the future of education at the John Moore Museum. Watch this space!
