Loan Boxes

These exciting new resources will enhance your local history project with museum artefacts and activities to use in the classroom.

Clocking On Pod

The pod is an interactive resource which allows children to learn about the history of Sheffield's steelworks by becoming 'trainee curators'. The resource is based on the theme of 'change' and tracks the changing face of work in Sheffield from the 1850s to the 1950s and up to the present day. The pod includes museum objects, photographs, an audio album, a book bag, items of costume and a teacher's pack with suggested activities and lesson plans.

Tools through Time

Using selected objects from the world significant Hawley Tool Collection learn about local trades and their associated tools. This highly tactile resource was developed with SEN specialists.

Each box can be booked per half term and costs £40 (plus a £50 deposit).
