our new museum

@MaryRoseLearn plan for the new Primary History Curriculum

Teachers and museum educators agree working in partnership can transform pupils’ learning. There is no substitute for experiencing history first-hand!


Over the last few months we have been watching the development of the new primary History Curriculum carefully and planning opportunities for pupils to continue to engage with the Mary Rose story. Many museums are rethinking their programmes as a result of the new chronological approach which sees most of the primary history content finish at 1066. However, there are important opportunities for thematic work post 1066 and a new emphasis on local history. Keeping the best elements of our past programmes, we will continue to provide high quality visits which will enrich the curriculum.
