School Groups

At Malton Museum, we are passionate about delivering an insightful and relevant learning programme. We have been visiting schools from Scarborough to Leeds and further afield for over 5 years with our Roman Legacy sessions and accompanying handling boxes.

More recently we have developed a new resource linked to the local study area of the curriculum and are currently producing a prehistory package.

Our offer to schools –

• The Romans- a visit to your school with the Roman Legacy, costume box, and handling box or hire the costume and handling box as a stand-alone resource.
• Local Study topic- a free digital resource “The Marvellous Map of Malton” with additional handling box and costume box available for loan.
• Prehistory- a digital resource and handling box is currently under development. Available September 2017.
• After school clubs- we are pleased to visit with the following sessions: Hands on History, Be a History Detective, and Drama workshops using objects from the collections.

Feedback from teachers

Great hands-on visit. The children really enjoyed interacting with the resources.
LKS2 teacher/ Head-teacher. 2016 (Roman Legacy)

Very well pitched and appropriate level. Well, organised – all children were well engaged. Informative, supported and extended the children’s learning. Yr 3 teachers 2016.

The Roman Legacy

Bring history to life by booking our educators for a half-day session. Or why not extend the experience by hiring our handling and costume boxes?
