Why visit The Great North Museum: Hancock with a primary school group?

Bringing primary school groups to The Great North Museum: Hancock is a great opportunity to build cultural capital, support your curriculum and bring learning to life. The museum also provides a rich environment for cross-curricular activities, from developing History and literacy through describing objects or writing a museum review, to observational sketching of animals for Science and Art. Or, dig deeper into a range of History and Science national curriculum topics, from Ancient Egypt to evolution or habitats. We offer workshops, bookable gallery kits and story bags, as well as downloadable and printable activities.
