Programmes

What’s in the Museum?

Chronology – from pre history to 20th Century KS1/2 pupils become history detectives working together handling objects from the collections. Ideas are shared as the lives of the people of the town are revealed.

Amazing Arundel

Why is the town here? KS2 pupils use maps and photographs, objects and costume to inspire investigation and debate. A town walk is recommended during the visit.

Medieval Realms

KS1/2 The knight’s chivalric code and the hierarchy of society – shields and catapults – the first castle in Arundel. Model Motte and Bailey is the target for model catapults.

Victorian and Edwardian Life

KS2 In the town and in the countryside - what did the people do and what did they wear? Costumes are used during the session.

If you have particular requirements for your visit, then please contact us. We are always happy to prepare a specific workshop or adapt one in our core programme.

Special Needs Groups

We are experienced in working with these groups, and all our workshop presentations can be modified to suit individual student needs.
