ABOUT THIS SECTION
Here you will find a number of ideas for activities that you can use with your class in the British Galleries. The suggested activities focus on History and Art and Design but contain cross-curricular elements. Each is structured in such a way as to provide ideas for preparation work at school, activities to do in the Museum and follow-up work in the classroom. The activities can be adapted for both primary and secondary school pupils.
Downloadable worksheets relating to each task are available on this site to help pupils record information in the Museum. Each programme of work also includes supporting historical and art historical information and associated images.
The supporting information for the programmes of work has been taken from these two publications.
Both books are available from the V&A Shop
