History to come alive

Portsmouth school launches postcard art project

Have your say

HISTORY will come alive for schoolchildren thanks a new and expanded education programme at Royal Armouries at Fort Nelson.

Pupils will explore timelines and chronology by viewing and handling museum objects dating back 600 years.

Sessions at the Fareham site will include established topics – such as Florence Nightingale, the First and Second World Wars – as well as new sessions focusing on arms and armour through time.

They will be aimed at pupils of all ages across the region, ranging from Key Stage One children in primary schools to Key Stage Three in secondary schools.

Education officer Eileen Clegg said: ‘Fort Nelson is an ideal place to take pupils on a trip back through time.’
