Primary School Workshops for 2018-2019.



Key Stage

Toys and Childhood

In this highly interactive cross-curricular workshop, pupils use toys and games to explore the past through the eyes of children. 

focussing on changes within living memory, this workshop increases children’s grasp of chronology and enhances describing, sorting and thinking skills. 


On the Cut –

Canal Experience 

Pupils discover what it was like to live on a working canal boat and how the watyerways were the ‘motorways’ of the past. 

With real objects, role play and the option of a trip on a traditional steam narrow boat, this workshop links to history, geography and STEAM. 

KS1 & KS2

Amazing Art

With an introduction from the Museum’s education staff and age appropriate resources, teachers can engage young learners in our brand new PYE Gallery. 

With regular changing cross-curricular exhibitions, it’s a great place to focus on the senses and explore colour, shape and story-telling.
