Summer Term at school!

With the start of the school Summer Term (where does the time go?!), we thought we would take a little look a back at the Spring Term delivery with Wakefield Museums.  From workshops at the two castles to visits to Wakefield Museum and outreach into schools, the team have covered sessions on Rhubarb to sessions using iPads to record short stories and animations. 

We met nearly 2000 pupils and their teachers during the Spring term and here are some comments we received:

“The workshop was excellent. The children all had chance to participate and had lots of fun” KS2 teacher Charles Waterton session

“Excellent workshop – appropriate to the age of the children. Children really enjoyed it and learnt a lot – Thank you” KS1 Teacher Charles Waterton session

“The workshop was very well organised and enjoyable.” KS1 teacher Victorian Houses and Homes session

“Very well led. All children engaged.” KS2 teacher Sandal Castle tour and poetry session

“I wish we could do it again” Y5 pupil animation session

“I in joyed it cos it was fun. The best bit was when she tod us about the things in her huse” Y1 pupils Victorian house and home session

“Dear Museum leader, Making the video was fun! It was the time of my life! Thank you for the visit” Y1 Objects and iPad storytelling session

So what do we have for the summer term? Well we have sessions booked including Egyptian artefacts, Medieval Bones, Tudor Food, Sandal Castle tours and more Waterton sessions - to name a few.
