Using objects in the classroom will help your pupils learn that the past can be represented in a variety of different ways and you can help to serve your students by engaging them with a new way to learn. We have objects available to loan for a week for a small fee of £25.00. During this time you have the opportunity to deliver the session as many times, and with as many classes, as you like. Handling authentic historical objects and using archival materials gives your students the chance to learn about how the past is different from the present day.

We are planning to deliver a medicine through time module with year 7 next year. ... I would love to work with you again as the artefacts in the classroom was a great experience for the students. Many of them hadn’t been to a museum or handled any items of that nature before. A really exceptional teaching tool.

Thank you so much for helping us to make Science Night a real hit at The Hive this year.

Thank you for the loan of the bleeding bowl from the museum ... my students (and colleagues) were very taken with it. Of around ten colleagues that I showed it to, only one guessed its purpose; and only one of my 20 students got it right. All were fascinated. I really appreciate your kindness in providing this remarkable and affecting object.
