Our Early Years and Key Stage 1 programmes provide unique and exciting learning experiences that make use of the museum’s own resources and allow pupils to get up close to a large collection of original vehicles.
As part of a programme designed to support the current national curriculum:
Pupils will explore Bury Transport Museums collection of vehicles, with wide ranging artefacts from a Victorian horse tram, traction engines and a 1950s fire engine and a variety of buses, cars and railway stock.
Pupils will examine the museum's vehicles and compare them to modern equivalents, inspecting the changes both in transportation and national life.
Children will create a purposeful and functional products based on design criteria, exploring wheels and axels before testing their finished product.
Children will study a range of everyday materials used for different purposes, identify their properties and thing about how each material is suitable for a specific job.
Art and Design
Pupils will design and make a small moving vehicle using a range of materials, develop their ideas and use colour and card to decorate and finish it.
Children will compare the size of wheels between vehicles and their own heights, older children will have the opportunity to use measuring tapes with worksheets.
