From Days at School to.....?
There are of course, our schools and later life education to consider. Read on!
KS1 topics with curriculum links perhaps to subjects such as ‘Transport Through Time’, or ‘The Place Where We Live’, prove attractive for teachers to arrange self-guided visits. The museum is ideal for this and offers its unique learning environment. For a pre-visit planning discussion, give our Education Manager a call on 01772 451 011.
KS2 STEM based workshops have been developed and are deliveredat the Museum with a follow-up activity on returning to school. Each workshop takes about 2.5 hours. Subjects include:- ‘Forces, Movement and Power’, in which children build rubber-band powered vehicles to explore how applied forces can generate movement. ‘The Crash Test’, in which model vehicles and Pay-Doh dummies are used to simulate collisions.
Children investigate the effects on passengers when either wearing or not wearing seatbelts. ‘Spread the Load’ is an activity where pupils investigate imposed weight as a force. Children use a model lorry to investigate how it can be properly loaded so that the vehicle is safe to use’.
