Our workshop experiences support learning outcomes based upon the themes of Investigate, Create and Reflect.
Guided Learning Experiences
These are led by the learning team and focus on topics related to the site, exhibitions and/or collections. They include a guided tour of the site. They are generally 1 hour long but times may vary.
- a visit to a temporary exhibition at Lincoln Museum or a visit to the Roman Posterngate (under Saltergate)
- a bailey tour at Lincoln Castle with a specific topic focus, for example medieval castle life or law and order
- a gallery tour at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life with a transport and technology focus.
You may wish to lead your own visit to the site. All self-led visits are booked via the learning team and there are a variety of options to choose from. Information about lunch room availability and access to other site facilities are also provided to support your risk assessments.
Each of our offers has a specific learning code (e.g. CM01 means Jurassic Sea at Lincoln Museum), an advisory age limit and details of the timescale.
There are example timetables on the website to give an idea of the full day or part day, but we will prepare yours with you on an individual basis.
Our learning team will support your decision making. They have a wealth of experience teaching across the age ranges and can advise on the most appropriate learning experience for your needs.
