Heritage Resources - Top 5 Recommends

1. Learning at home with Norwich Castle

Norwich Castle are back with Snappy from home, rhymes, songs and museum objects to stimulate children’s imagination (ages 0 – 1) alongside a variety of education packs created for and split into Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. These resources include ‘Get Active in Ancient Rome with Joseph Wickus’ as well as several virtual tours. The full variety of mediums and age ranges makes Norwich Museum and Castle a brilliant resource for all teachers looking to set some heritage based activities.

2. Time and Tide Museum Resources

With an A to Z of objects found in the museum, a sneak peak of their new exhibition ‘May the Toys be with you’ and much more, Time and Tide’s ‘Museums from Home’ has got loads of different ways for kids to engage with museums and heritage. My favourite section  is their Kids and Collections series which features blogs such as ‘going potty for pottery’ full of stories, facts and great crafty ideas.


3. Lockdown Living Room Escape Challenge

I think we’ve all definitely felt like we wanted to escape our houses at some point in the past few months, and with the Living Room Escape Challenge, you can make a plan to break free! These 5 short tutorials teach you how to create your very own escape room. A brilliant task for children and young people of all ages and a great way to get creative, get inventive, and collaborate in new ways.


4. Five Day bundle: Climate Proof Cities

This 5 Day Bundle which @BirdGirlUK is an ambassador for, is perfect for secondary students looking to find out more about Flora, Fauna, Natural Heritage, Humans & Sustainability. One of these topics is looked at each day through a video and activities making these sometimes scary topics to grasp, really accessible.


5. Common Ground Challenges

@NNFCommonGround is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival project engaging young people aged 13 – 25 in Natural Heritage. Through-out July they will be doing a series of #GroundedChallenges exploring natural heritage through art and creativity. Head to their Instagram to make sure you don’t miss out on any upcoming challenges!
