Learning Resources for Teachers

Fun and engaging things to do to keep everyone entertained.


 

We support your curriculum with learning programmes and resources that are underpinned by:

  • Raising awareness of the environment
  • Supporting health and wellbeing
  • Promoting diversity

Our learning resources have been adapted from sessions that we deliver onsite at Chatsworth, Bolton Abbey or Lismore Castle, for you to use in your classroom, or at home. They are all linked to the national curriculum and are suitable for KS1 and KS2, with the exception of Portraits and Identity which is suitable for KS2 and KS3.
