Just before the summer holidays a group of children ( 4 -7 yrs) visited Manchester Museum with their teachers Darren Micklewright and Jackie Morisson and a group of parents. As well as visiting the galleries ,they were invited to handle and respond to a selection of objects which had been selected for the new hands on Nature Discovery gallery at Manchester Museum for young children and families . You can now view their very enlightening and creative responses on YouTube!
Here are links to other conversations with early years groups at Manchester museum which are on You Tube which might be of interest.These clips are great to use with staff and or children pre or post museum visit.
