LATEST NEWS: This term we have had three schools (including one home education group) visit the museum. Each school took part in a ‘Victorian Life’ workshop. We split the classes in two and each team worked with both myself and Lindsey to discover more about life in Victorian Saddleworth through hands on activities. From washing clothes to working in the factories, taking part in a Victorian class room experience to identifying the Victorian objects on display, pupils discovered all about life in the industrial age. Cat Jessop December 2016.
Our Schools Programme of bookable workshops is currently under development and will be made available to view here along with a downloadable Risk Assessment. Cross-curricular sessions will include Local History, Rocks & Fossils, The Romans and Textiles. In the meantime, you may contact the Learning Officers to book an independent visit to the museum or book one of our Victorian Days workshops. We look forward to welcoming you soon! If you would like to make a booking to bring a group or require further information, please complete and submit the form below. Cat or Lindsey will then probably telephone you.
(Alternatvely you could try and telephone Cat or Lindsey directly at the museum on 01457 874 093 between 10 am and 4 pm, Monday to Friday, but of course, they may be enganged in another learning activity and be unable to speak to you immediately. If you do need to make the intial contact by emailing email@example.com it would most useful that you include your own telephone number.)
