Key Stage 1

Water links to many of the topics taught in schools and our museum is a fantastic setting to learn about it. The displays cover features such as cleanliness and health, how we use water from rivers and how these aspects have changed over time.

At the Museum your children will not only love exploring the interactive displays, but they can also experience a range of education sessions designed to stimulate enquiring minds through learning about how clean water is delivered to our homes.

Sessions are challenging and highly interactive, with pupils engaged in making things, investigating and role play.

Please browse the descriptions below, or download the school pack for full details. Contact the Learning Coordinator to arrange your visit to the museum.

We look forward to welcoming you here soon
