Back to School with Somerset Remembers

First World War themed learning sessions are taking place at the Museum of Somerset this term to accompany the Somerset Remembers exhibition. Our Formal Learning Officer Lizzie Mee has devised sessions for school children in Key Stages 1-3.

Children from North Town Primary School in Taunton have already visited the museum to take part in educational activities which included learning about Edwardian dress and sending messages in socks to soldiers in Europe. A highlight for the children was looking for objects in the exhibition gallery.
