Site: Kirkstall Abbey
History, Art, Science, Literacy
This workshop is led by museums staff.
A range of fun, practical activities involving puppets, rubbings and dressing up help pupils to understand the different materials used in old buildings and how buildings change over time. Directed by the workshop leader, pupils explore the abbey in small groups collecting information on colour, texture, pattern & design. This information feeds into group discussions and pieces of group art work for your class to keep. This cross curricular workshop can be differentiated for different learning aims.
