From September 2018, Craven Museum will close whilst the Museum is redesigned and rebuilt. As part of this project, we have created special Outreach workshops that the Museum team have been delivering straight to schools, encouraging classes to explore and engage with a mixture of real and replica objects to bring the past to life, all completely free.
Although we are currently unable to deliver workshops in classrooms, we have created four free resources that you can download below and use for learning at home:
Stone Age to Iron Age
KS2 History: Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, with links to: KS2 Science, Design and Technology, Geology, English
