The resources pages are being developed to hold downloadable resources to make your visit to the museum more valuable.
As we find and develop resources they will be added as downloads listed below. You may find amongst these:
Resources to develop key ideas and vocabulary that will help pupils understand what they see and do on visits.
Resources to stimulate follow-up work in the classroom, on the topic of the visit or to develop literacy, numeracy and other curriculum areas.
Resources for activities learners can undertake at home, linked to school work or to expand knowledge and interest in what they have seen in the museum.
Resources will be listed here when available. Please register and login to access the downloads.
