From Egyptians to Romans, Mansion to Castle, our museums and schools sessions inspire children to look, investigate, compare and question their ideas about the world around them.
The wide range of collections provide endless possibilities to explore any area of learning, whether you want to plan your own visit or take part in one of our active museum-led sessions.
Year 3 and 4 children from Silver End Primary School visited Colchester Castle as part of their Roman history theme.
When the children returned to school from their visit, they couldn’t have been more engaged or enthused about this period in history. They followed trails around the museum, thoroughly enjoyed the interactive aspects of games such as the chariot racing and they were able to put what they had learned in class into context through the artefacts and role play.
Teachers and supporting adults felt that the children had an educational and memorable day out, purposefully supporting our curriculum.Victoria Good
