A Learning Resource Pack is available for school visits to The Parish Church of St Mary and St Nicolas and Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens in Spalding.
The histories of the Parish Church of St Mary and St Nicolas and nearby Ayscoughfee Hall have been linked closely for many centuries. This learning resource is designed to support teacher-led self-directed class visits to the two sites and has been developed as a partnership project between the two organisations. It is just a short walk between the Hall and the Church to explore the lives and times of people who have lived at Ayscoughfee Hall and worshipped in the parish church.
The learning pack provides curriculum-linked ideas, information and practical advice for teachers and pupils engaging with both sites on a single or separate visit and supports many cross-curricular learning outcomes with:
pre-visit activity ideas
information and trail sheets for adults or good readers to use in small group work during your visit
trail and activity sheets to use during your visit are also available to download separately so that they can be edited for differentiation by teachers
information on the resource handling boxes and interactive displays in the Museum
follow-up ideas to try back at school
The pack has been designed for Key Stage 1 and 2 children but can also be adapted for use with Key Stage 3 students. There are three themes to explore:
