Wardown Park Museum is a local history museum in Luton, Bedfordshire. They have a successful schools programme that offers a broad range of cross-curricular engaging activities and resources that build on and extend pupils’ classroom learning. Through video conferencing they hope to be able to bring their approach to schools from further afield.
Video conferences are offered as part of a short unit of work that complements popular KS2 history topics in school but also offer opportunities to support literacy, drama, thinking skills and SEAL. They aim to take the conference beyond an ‘ask the expert’ interview and engage children with a narrative to which they can contribute through their existing knowledge, questioning skills and imagination.
They are offering three sessions and a range of dates in January, February and March 2012.
World War Two – Kitchen tips
Ancient Greeks – the mystery of the ghostly Greek
Victorians – a working boy
