New online learning resources on Ancient Egypt, Romans in Devon and the Second World War
2 June 2020
We have launched a comprehensive set of learning resources on Ancient Egypt, Romans in Devon and the Second World War. Primarily aimed at Key Stage 2 (7 to 11 year olds), but available for all, these fun, engaging and creative activities are designed to help both teachers in planning their classes as well as parents and carers looking for activities to do at home.
The Ancient Egypt materials offer children the chance to take Shep en-Mut’s animal god challenge, build their own ancient Egyptian tomb, make and play the game Senet and join our scribe school to test their hieroglyph skills.
The Romans in Devon materials show children how to become a master craftsperson and try out RAMM’s mosaic-inspired crafts. Children can learn about Exeter’s Roman fortress and bathhouse how to tie a toga or play the Roman ball game Trigon.
These two brand new resources follow on from The Second World War and the Exeter Blitz materials released a few weeks ago by RAMM. Areas covered included learning about the Home Front, finding out what it was like to be an evacuee, creating wartime posters and learning how to design your own Dig for Victory Garden.
To use these resources simply visit https://rammuseum.org.uk/schools/online-learning/ to access them. They are free to use.
During these uncertain times the museum continues to be closed until further notice. Once RAMM re-opens schools will be able to book onto a programme of visits for primary aged children. For more information on these visit www.rammuseum.org.uk/schools.
