Secondary and post-16 sessions
The Geffrye supports teachers in delivering the new National Curriculum from September 2014. Our collection is ideally suited to fostering an understanding of chronology and context. New sessions have been devised for all year groups. Preview the Secondary sessions here.
Tudor, Georgian, Victorian and 20th Century INSETS will be available on specific dates once a term from September 2014 to familiarise secondary teachers with the new historical periods.
Your group will be able to contextualise primary source material and handling objects in front of our period rooms and extend their knowledge through investigation and creative activity in our purpose-built studios.
Our experienced team of museum professionals, historians and artists offer inspiring and interactive sessions which provide the perfect opportunity to enhance and support the curriculum and school-based projects.
Sessions can be adapted to suit your groups’ requirements and we are happy to fit in with your approach if you are working on a particular project. We are usually able to host an entire year-group by rotating activities around the museum and gardens. Alternatively we can arrange access to our archive for smaller study groups.
Please telephone 0207 749 6044 or email Janice Welch JWelch@geffrye-museum.org.uk to discuss your requirements.
