Schools move lessons to local museums for learning experiment

  • Description

    'The project – “My Primary School is at the Museum” – bases whole classes in museums for their day-to-day programme of lessons, including lunches and breaks, to give children a completely different experience from the more usual occasional museum visit. ......Scott Brown, head of Hadrian Primary School in South Shields, which has moved its class of 29 nine- and 10-year-olds to Arbeia Roman Fort in South Tyneside, said: “I think the project has had a massive impact on children. It has really opened their eyes to what history can provide, not only in education but also in terms of stimulus and entertainment.”....... '
