This workshop is led by museums staff.
How and why have houses changed over time? Who lived at Temple Newsam House?
This lively workshop uses artefacts, costume and a journey of discovery around winding passageways and hidden rooms to widen historical vocabulary, encourage questioning and develop chronological knowledge over 500 years of history.
- KS1 will compare and contrast objects old and new.
- KS2 will create a living time line using objects and clues to tell the story of the house.
“Local. Ease of organisation. Activities fully planned, prepared and resources. Variety of activities” KS1 teacher
