Photograph - objects from the loans box 'World War One - A Soldier's Life'

We have a range of resource loans boxes on a number of topics available to hire for use within your school.

The loans boxes contain a range of items such as real and replica objects, ephemera, costume, books and media along with a teacher pack and activity ideas on how to use the contents of the box. For a small fee you will have access to the box within your setting for a half term. Contact the learning team to book your boxes.

We have a fantastic online resource which can be enhanced by using our loans boxes, the free Museum in Your Classroom toolkit is a great way to engage your students with your chosen topic and with the objects by creating their own exhibition in the school setting. Contact us if you would like any additional help in using the toolkit.
