Learning Resource: Meals inspired by our Buildings

Tags : 

Iron Age Meal

Here at COAM we have buildings from all different time periods. From our reconstructed Iron Age Roundhouse to our 1940s Prefab. Each building represents how people lived their everyday lives in that period and all of our buildings that housed people have some form of a kitchen or place to cook food. This week, we thought we’d give you a taste of what families who lived in our buildings might have eaten. In this resource there are two recipes, one inspired by our Iron Age Roundhouse and one inspired by our Leagrave Cottages. We hope you enjoy having a go at making these recipes!

Learning Resource: Signs of Spring

Tags : 

Spring is definitely arriving on our site and around our local areas and there are plenty of ways to spot this! As the weather improves and we slowly ease out of lockdown, spending some time outside is great for your mental and physical health but remember to stay safe and follow the Government guidelines. Follow this guide and over the next few weeks, when you go out for a springtime walk, keep an eye out for some of the plants and shrubs listed. What can you spot?

View our Signs of Spring learning resource

Children may be back in classrooms however we will continue to release fun resources and activities for all the family to get involved in and enjoy together every Tuesday until the end of the Easter Holidays. Brought to you by the Learning team behind our popular ‘Terrific Tuesday’ events, these resources will be a perfect way to learn new information about the natural world around us, develop new skills and stay connected to the Museum until we reopen in late March.

Be sure to check back next week for more home learning fun.

Learning resource – the gardens at COAM

Tags : 

Chiltern Open Air Museum allotment

With the start of spring just around the corner we thought there was no better time to tell you all about the different gardens we have here at COAM and the hard work of our wonderful gardening volunteers to keep them looking great for our visitors. In our eighth installment of home learning resources you can discover the planning that goes into each garden and how we use the spaces we have available to show different time periods. Discover what a ‘day in the life’ of one of our volunteer gardeners is like and how the gardens need attention throughout the year. Finally, have a go at designing your own garden or outdoor space!
