Learning Experiences at our sites
We are looking forward to the time when we can welcome you all back for our learning workshops and guided learning sessions at the Lincoln heritage sites (Lincoln Castle, The Collection and Museum of Lincolnshire Life).
Over the summer we will be finalising our plans for this in order to ensure your safety.
Keep an eye on our website for updates.
Investigate Learning have recently become an Arts Award centre and we are busy planning our new offers. Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we can support your pupils in gaining their Arts Awards.
As an Artsmark Partner we work with many schools and colleges to support their creative arts journey.
Museums and Schools Aviation Learning Project
Our Aviation learning team continue to offer their exciting range of workshops across the Aviation sites of Lincolnshire. Schools will be invited to join in with both digital and onsite activities, as well as offering the Discover at Home Arts Award.
Outreach Loans Kits – Investigate Learning on Tour
Our loans kits are available in September (new T & Cs for Covid-19) and we will also be launching some new ones in the Autumn. These will focus upon interpretation skills and designing your own exhibitions.
These larger kits are based upon topics such as Prehistory, Early Medieval and Creative Arts (four new Arts kits).
Look out for the launch in the Autumn!
Our digital learning resources from lockdown are available on the site websites below. We are looking to further develop our digital offer and would be interested to hear from you regarding the areas you would like us to support and focus upon where we can. This could lead to the development of project packs for gallery tours and Arts awards or something else…
We are open to ideas for the development of our digital support activities linked our sites and collections! Let us know how we might help.Read More
The Investigate learning team have been reformatting all of their outreach kits and will have four new Creative Arts kits – with canvases and other arts artefacts alongside the history kits.
One of the new Creative Arts kits being developed for the Autumn will have a Lincoln theme and this learning resource invites you to have a go at landscape drawing/painting.
Here we have Turner’s watercolour painting from our collection to inspire you to get creative! We will be launching the new offer over the summer so watch this space!
Thank you to The Mighty Creatives for their help and support for this new project.Read More
During the closures the Investigate Learning team are busy working behind the scenes planning and updating our exciting learning offers. We are uploading learning resources for aviation learning on this site and also at the following sites
The learning resources will be added to each week and will focus upon the learning offers in Heritage and Creative Arts. If you have any areas of our work and sites that you would like us to focus upon then please do not hesitate to get in touch and we’ll see what we can do!
We very much look forward to seeing you on the sites soon!
Lincolnshire County Council and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire’s Museums and Schools Programme offer high quality educational visits bringing to life Lincolnshire’s aviation story like never before. From the Dam Busters to aviation technology and social history, from WW1 through to the Cold War and beyond, all fourteen participating AHL sites have unique experiences to offer and inspire children and young people. We are seeking to work with schools throughout the county who wish to take advantage of these exciting out-of-school learning opportunities.
Our funding has enabled us to develop popular and high quality workshops for schools which cover not just History but other areas of the curriculum such as Art, English (Poetry, Creative Writing) and STEM. These are all held at our Aviation Heritage sites so the children are immersed in and inspired by the history all around them whilst they learn.
Examples of our workshops are:
- Art and Poetry Days (half a day with a poet and the other half with an artist)
- Fly away Days (half day art workshops)
- Superheroes (creative writing)
- Wartime Christmas
- WW1/WW2 days
- Remembrance workshops
- Jamborees – full days covering a variety of topics, most recently we held a D Day commemoration series of these workshops
- ‘Discover in a Day’ Arts Award Days – the children will all complete their Discover Level Arts Award during these sessions
- ‘The Big Draw’
