We offer extensive education and outreach resources surrounding each exhibition programme; including both on site storytelling workshops during the exhibition and teachers’ resource packs for lessons in the classroom.

Storytelling Workshops

We offer storytelling workshops free of charge to all primary school groups. These workshops encourage children to engage with the contents and themes of the exhibitions whilst improving their use of spoken and written descriptive language. This includes group discussion, pair and small group work, investigation, storytelling performance and writing. The activities and outcomes from the workshop can be used to inspire further work in the classroom.

The workshops are designed and delivered by our partners, theWholeStory, who have worked with the education teams at Historic Royal Palaces, the Horniman Museum, the Geffrye Museum and the V&A Museum of Childhood.

‘Love the workshop – got to do ART! Surreal.’

Young Sussex Modernism Visitor, 2017

‘The workshop leaders were outstanding – the children were captivated by their stories and activities from start to finish.’

St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School, 2014

‘The chance to really look at an eclectic mix of artifacts instead of racing around an enormous museum pushing buttons randomly, was really appreciated! The story-telling skills and the use of appropriate language for the age (and mixed ability) of the group was really great.’

Sudbourne School, 2015

‘We loved the workshop! It was very interactive, interesting, well lead and fun! It allowed the children to tap further into their creative side with a more personal touch’

Henry Cavendish Primary School, 2017
