Capital of culture and cultural capital!

PGCE trainees explored the Walker Art Gallery during February as part of The LAC module whereby they began to consider how to help children learn from and within a gallery space. They were asked to consider the value of orientation activities,  the silent pedagogy of the gallery, creativity, learning outside the classroom and scaffolding. They created poetry related to a painting, undertook musical chair and art activities, identified how current affairs could be linked to contemporary art and considered how a teacher can use their understanding of how children learn to make a museum, gallery or archive  purposeful for learning. A fun and interesting day that demonstrated a true partnership between edge hill and the museums of Liverpool.
