Caption: An industrious past
The aim of these activities is to enable students to study an aspect of history dating from a period beyond 1066 that is significant in the locality.
Bury Transport Museum, The Fusilier Museum and Bury Art Museum are working together to offer a unique day of learning outside of the classroom.
By the end of the visit, pupils will have extended their chronological knowledge beyond 1066. Their knowledge and understanding of Victorian life will be widened by experiencing a variety of activities at Bury’s three award-winning museums.
This programme is suitable for Key Stage 2.
