Medlock Primary School begin to curate a case in the school and public lunch area.

Over the past few months Medlock Primary School have been working with a member of the  Museum’s Learning Team, Curatorial Team and the Museum’s Workshop team to help redesign a forgotten display case situated in the school and public lunch area.

The fabulous group of children from Medlock Primary have been investigating a selection of objects and have come up with a list of 8 objects they would most like to see displayed in the case. The group are really inspiring, creative thinkers as they then set about linking storybook themes to the case design.

Here’s a taster of what the case looked like before the group got their creative hands on it and a little taster of what’s in store for the case over the next few weeks.

The empty case awaits its revamp!

One little ladybird has made it's way into the case! What else will follow?

Watch this space for future instalments and eventually the grand opening of this very special case.

Well done to Medlock’s Cultural Ambassadors for all your hard work so far!
