Schools

MoDiP is pleased to welcome school groups on a pre-booked basis to ensure an enjoyable and productive visit.

Groups can conduct a self-guided visit or an additional engagment activity can be supplied.  Workshops, activities, object-based learning or museum engagement sessions can be arranged at MoDiP or as outreach to schools, in order to support the national curriculum through engagement with the collection.

Available session include:

  • Toys – old and new, suitable for key stage 1.
  • Material properties of plastics, suitable for key stage 1, 2 & 3
  • Expression through music, suitable for all ages.

Our handling collection is available for use during object-based learning or museum engagement sessions at MoDiP, as outreach, or loans. The handling collection current includes toys, musical instruments and household objects / memorabilia.

We can offer bespoke sessions to schools provided the topic relates to design in plastic or includes objects from the handling, main collection or those currently on display.
