Spring term 2017
Happy New Year!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the year ahead.
Elmbridge Museum had a busy Autumn term exploring Roman bathing routines in Cobham, the daily routines of Victorian Servants in in Weybridge and celebrating the artistic heritage of Oxshott.
Due to a changeover of staff, we will be suspending our outreach offer from 3 January until 15 March 2017. This means that the outreach sessions, assemblies and CPD will not be available during this time.
However, you will still be able to loan Discovery Boxes during this period.
To book a Discovery Box please get in touch.
Museum Display Take Over
The Year 3’s from Royal Kent C of E Primary School came to Cobham Library in October to celebrate the exhibition of their artwork based on the work of local potters, Denise and Rosemary Wren. The children were joined by the Chairman of Surrey County Council, Mrs Sally Marks and the Mayor, Tannia Shipley, who congratulated and gave the children their certificates for taking part in the workshop.
Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust
Elmbridge Museum has a growing partnership with Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust, which now sponsor four local schools to be part of our membership scheme. This partnership has enabled greater access to the Museum’s learning service by local schools and supports us in using the rich local history to capture their imagination.
WW1 – Soldiers Kit Discovery Box
We have developed a new discovery box which explores what life was like for soldier’s living on the Front Line during World War One. This Discovery Box contains examples of some of the items a soldier may have had with them and explores the themes of hygiene, uniform, souvenirs, personal effects, and correspondence. This collection of objects has been selected to be used for object handling within classroom and are ideal for providing an immersive experience for children learning about World War One.
This box can be loaned for two weeks from Elmbridge Museum, to book please contact the museum.
