This Learning Pack is aimed at Key Stages 2, 3 & 4. It has been developed in consultation with a range of teachers and group leaders.
It contains 6 themed lessons, each with a choice of activity that can be adapted, as well as case studies.
Lessons are linked to history, geography and creative writing and mean that you can showcase and celebrate your local heritage.
This reminiscence pack has been inspired by our work with active living groups and residential homes. Our trained team of volunteers would travel to one these groups with a specially picked handling box brimming with nostalgic items.
Now that times have changed, we’re created this resource pack to help inspire living history conversations over the telephone, online or even a letter!

Top Treasures Trail
Team up with our founder William Mable to explore the galleries upstairs, exploring some of the incredible objects we have here at Weston Museum! There will be either a question to answer or an activity to complete after each treasure.
The trail is a printable PDF, however if you do not have access to a printer, the activities can be completed on plain paper at home.
To download the trail click here.
Do you love our trails? Do you wish you could still do them at home? If both of those answers are YES, then you’ll be pleased to see what we have created some that you can do from home!
The Fact Hunts are similar to our trails, except instead of exploring our galleries, we ask you to do research into the chosen topic! 24 hours after the Fact Hunt has been released, we will post the Answer Sheet – which will provide you the answers we found. Share with us how many you got right with the hashtag #westonmuseumfacthunt
