Communication skills can be developed on site and then
back in the classroom.
By describing events and developing ideas
through discussion and writing in different situations, pupils are extending
their listening skills and commenting and communicating effectively.
The exhibits; houses, buildings and landscape
can be used as a stimulus for creative writing and poetry and there are
endless opportunities for building Word Banks etc.
Projects can be explored... writing for
different audiences such as pupils preparing their own guide books,
introductory leaflets and trail guides.
Drama opportunities encourage pupils to use
language and appropriate actions to explore situations, characters and
emotions and use language relating to a particular role.
Some schools choose to develop drama activities on site and relevant space
or buildings can be made available for this by prior booking.
English curriculum is divided into Key Stage
1 and 2
and Key Stage 3 and
4. A visit to the museum can embrace all aspects of the curriculum.
