This lively workshop gives children the opportunity to explore the museum galleries dressed as visitors from 1904.

During the session we explore the history of the town, why we are here and how the town and its people have changed.

Children will learn about the significant people, places and buildings of our town through our game of Boro Bingo.

This session aims to encourage children to be proud of the town they live in.

Key learning outcome:

Students learn about the heritage of the town, why it’s changed and learn how the town is moving forward. They learn about significant people, places and landmarks from the town with a focus on being proud to live in our area.

Main learning approaches:

  • Creative learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Planning a visit

    All staff led sessions at the museum are generally two hours long and run between 9.30-11.30am and 12.30 – 2.30.

    To ensure a quality experience, we ask that the maximum number of children booked in per workshop session is 30.

    A room for lunch is provided when booking sessions led by the museum staff.

    Pre-booking is essential.
