Supporting education at all levels
We provide help to those working in education and to parents in a number of ways. For example:
School Visits - We welcome schools during our usual opening hours but can also offer school visits on Mondays when we are closed to the public. These can be local history based with a Museum Detective Quiz, based on our current exhibition, or based on one of our loans boxes. We aim to support teaching and learning at all key stages including Early Years. Please contact us to talk about your requirements.
Using Bailiffgate as a focus for Hands on Activity - we invite teachers to use the space and materials to be found at Bailiffgate as learning aids.
Offering Loans Box Hire – These are applicable to all ages; from young people exploring history to older people for reminiscence work. Over 20 loans boxes for the purposes of education are available to borrow for a maximum period of two weeks by schools, childminders, regularly home schooled pupils and young people’s groups. For details of each box contents and to order a box go here.
Life Long Learning and Reminiscence - Some of our loans boxes are particularly suitable for this application,and can be borrowed by care homes and other organisations, for example Age Concern, Dementia Friends, etc.
