Just recently we’ve been really fortunate to start work with Walton-le-Dale Hgh School in Preston on a project they are working on in school all about China. As part of this we delivered our workshops developed alongside the China: Journey to the East exhibition from the British Museum. Walton-Le-Dale were able to bring the majority of their Year 8 cohort to take part in both Exploring China and Made in China across two days and here at the Museum we delivered each workshop four times!
It was a hectic couple of days, but appeared to be successful and fun, allowing students to explore their existing knowledge whilst also adding to their skills and exploration of the topic . I’ve added some photographs we took on the day – both of the displays they created in Exploring China, and the shadow puppets crafted in Made in China.
We’ll be offering both these two engaging sessions in the summer term until the exhibition closes here at The Manchester Museum on 26th June 2011. Enjoy!
