Primary Learning at Manchester Museum
Our Primary Learning Programme aims to support children to engage with objects, animals and artefacts on their own terms: to investigate, ask questions, use evidence, and be excited!
We do this through four steps of enquiry that build museum literacy skills: LOOK closely at these amazing things. CONNECT with your knowledge and experiences. EXPLAIN what you think. WONDER at what else you could learn…
You’ll find these four steps throughout everything we do, and something we hope will suit every school:
- Want a day at the museum with some facilitated time and a little freedom to explore? Try our Workshops.
- For a structured project embedded into your topic without the cost? Try a Big Question package.
- If you’re looking for complete freedom to plan your own visit, you can come self-led and dip into our supporting resources.
- If you’re not sure what to go for, or would like to combine our offers to suit your class perfectly, drop us a message on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help.
