Colchester Museums is once again partnering with Essex and Suffolk Children’s Universities to bring some fun to home learning activities throughout lockdown.
Colchester + Ipswich Museums launched Museum From Home during the first national lockdown and it has continued to be available to families at home throughout the most recent national lockdown.
More structured national curriculum resources are now also available to schools and home learning providers to either use in the school environment or through home learning, with Colchester Museums new Castle In The Classroom teaching resource launched in January 2021.
Museum From Home’s newest activity is a fun worksheet aimed at primary school-aged children that examines life in Iron Age Britain.
