National Museums Liverpool’s brand new virtual classroom workshops are now available to book online for the first time ever.
Created for schools for the new academic year, NML’s interactive curriculum-linked workshops – led by museum experts – bring learning to life and inspire the imaginations of your pupils by engaging them in activities based on real artefacts.
Mummification, Greek gods and transatlantic slavery are some of the subject’s school children can learn about in the comfort of their classrooms, thanks to virtual workshops developed by National Museums Liverpool.
COVID-19 has changed the way in which people work and learn. National Museums Liverpool have been forced to adapt their way of working and how they engage with schools and groups.
With social distancing measures in place across all museums and galleries, NML are not able to accept school bookings. These virtual sessions allow NML to interact with schools and be more accessible to schools across the country during the pandemic.
Using feedback from teachers, NML have designed six live workshops for key stages 1-3, each of which are supported by resources and activities that can be used before and after the session, including art and crafts templates and fact sheets about key museum artefacts.
The workshops have been designed to develop teamworking skills, boost imagination and promote positive wellbeing, for example quizzes, role play, crafting, drawing, discussions and decoding puzzles.
The virtual classrooms will be delivered securely by Microsof
