We'll get back to you as soon as we can
Contrast current and traditional ways of life in Australia. Sing along with old and new Australian songs. Find out about its native animals and its national flag. Try on a sarong decorated with aboriginal art or try playing a didgeridoo.
Show an artefact as a lesson starter. Encourage questions and extend thinking about whether the object belongs to present day or traditional Australian culture.
The Anglo-Saxons ruled for over 500 years. How did they live? Find out from the replica objects including burial urns and cooking pots, jewellery, runes and coins, and Saxon outfits to try on.
Re-enact life in a Saxon village in your classroom and encourage the school community to visit and engage in the experience. Plan your own ‘archaeological dig’ and research and display the objects you discover.
Who were the Ancient Greeks? Use any one of our many loan boxes to help recreate the sport, daily life and culture of Ancient Greece. Examine replica pottery vessels, coins, helmets, masks, idols and wall plaques or a personally inscribed athlete’s discus.
The Greeks admired strength and physical fitness and used sport to train their soldiers for war. Contrast ancient Greek athletes with modern day Olympic athletes. The ancient Greeks were also skilled potters. Be inspired to make your own clay oil lamp or amphora and decorate them with mythical scenes or symbols of heroes and gods.
Bring the world of Ancient Egypt alive with one of our most extensive collections of artefacts. Figures of kings, queens, mummies and sacred animals, jewellery, writing and stamp sets, hieroglyph objects, and blank papyrus that can be used, will feature in any one of our multiple loan boxes.
Write your given name in hieroglyphs. Try ‘hot seating’ with the role play masks and either interview or be interviewed as King Tutankhamun and find out about the life and times of this famous figure.
Explore the length and breadth of Africa and experience the diversity of its cultures using a typical collection that includes original musical instruments, masks and carvings, toys and textiles.
The collection would be ideal for cross-curricular work. Use the artefacts as a starting point for pupils to make their own musical instruments, toys or art work from recycled materials. Examine and discuss the significance of the masks and figures to the person who made or uses it.
