Home Learning Resources

Home Schooling due to the Coronavirus brings a new learning challenge for many parents and teachers. Our Learning Team have put together a range of resources to help you out, each one is based around the buildings at the Museum. We will be uploading a new resource every Tuesday afternoon during February and March 2021. We’d love to see any work you have created using these resources so please share them on social media using #COAMAtHome
