Bring history to life at Poole Museum

Poole Museum is inviting local school children to a new range of workshops developed to bring history lessons to life.

Set in a Victorian kitchen, an old fashioned toy room, a Roman House and on board a pirate ship, these interactive workshops help make learning playful and exciting.

The workshops have been created to meet the needs of the new curriculum. Together with the help of the Museum Team, they bring history into the present day through a series of interesting characters and role play. Available for the Stone Age, local history, modern history and local pirate hero, Harry Paye they cover new periods now on the history curriculum.

During their visit, children will be able to make use of the museums fantastic immersive environment, including the only reconstructed Roman salt dwellers home in the world and Scaplen’s Court, Poole’s finest medieval domestic building.

Richard Howard, Teacher at St Mary’s Combined School, Poole said: “It goes without saying that we are all very grateful for the superb service we received from the Museum service (including the Local History Centre who were also extremely helpful) and we look forward to working with you again to make the most of the heritage these children have.”

Cllr Xena Dion, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Community Learning, Borough of Poole, said: "Poole Museum’s school workshops are a fantastic way to inject some life into history lessons and make learning fun. I’m certain the children who take part will remember their visit for many years to come.”
