In March 2018 we launched an online ideas bank of downloadable teacher resources on the education page of our website.
The resources support learning in the three areas of English, Science and Learning From Objects. They have been created as the result of teacher training sessions (led by Pippa Smith of “Handling The Past” and Robert Cooper of STEM Learning) and of the Palace House Literacy Project, “Poetry Is A Horse” which was run in partnership with All Saints’ CE Primary School and performance poet, Justin Coe.
Each resource gives teachers ideas for activities which will support learning before, during and after a visit to the Heritage Centre so that the experience can be as meaningful as possible, with direct relevance to areas of the National Curriculum.
Gabrielle Bell, Education Officer at Palace House, said: “We hope that the ideas bank will make our collections more accessible in terms of learning and will give teachers a starting point to inspire and stimulate active exploration of the Heritage Centre. The resources will also provide a focus for school groups taking part in self-led visits, giving school staff a helping hand. We hope to add to it over time, and plan to also invite teachers who have visited to share their own resources and case studies.”
