Bucks museums helping with homeschooling

If you're looking for some alternative lessons as term time begins again, Buckinghamshire's museums have some ideas.

The Chiltern Open Air Museum have put together 17 different online resource packs, covering Anglo Saxon crafts to wallpaper designing.

20,000 school children visit the site each year, so they wanted to keep on supporting them.


Each resource includes a range of activities and research projects from learning the Runic Futhork Alphabet and using it to write secret messages, making an Anglo Saxon brooch, designing wall paper, finding the melting point of chocolate and lots more.

Chiltern Open Air Museum's Marketing Manager, Helen Light, said:

"It's a difficult time for everyone, teachers are trying to quickly create home learning resources and parents are looking for fun and educational activities that they can do with their children that doesn't result in World War 3!

"The Museum Team has the knowledge, experience and resources so wanted to put something together to help."

The resources can be found at www.coam.org.uk

Roald Dahl Museum

Meanwhile, the Roald Dahl Museum in Great MIssenden has some other resources you might find useful.

From a virtual tour of the museum, to arts & crafts inspired by the children's author and his books, the team have created activities to try at home.

They also have some tips on working from home, thanks to the man himself.
