Blended Learning

About the packs

We have designed three learning packs, each one looking at ‘life as a child’ during different periods in time. The packs will encourage learners to draw comparisons between life in the past and life today.

Designed for primary schools, the packs offer a blended learning experience with each pack combining a variety of sources. Using historic photographs, museum objects and personal stories, pupils will explore Cardiff’s history and build a knowledge and understanding of their locality, communities and heritage.

In addition to the main digital resource presentation, you will receive teaching notes and an easy read version of the resource. Each pack has been designed to complement the New Curriculum for Wales’ areas of learning and experience.

Available packs

There are three packs for you to choose from, each containing a blended learning resource. The packs are available as either self-led or museum-led, which will be facilitated at the museum or over Microsoft Teams.

  • Life as a child: Victorian Cardiff

  • Life as a child: Second World War
