We have made links between the Nick Baldwin Collection, the National Curriculum and the QCA Schemes of Work, but you can use the activities to suit your own planning.
There are activities to use in the classroom, online, at home or to support a visit to the Nick Baldwin Collection exhibition.
There is something here for all learners whether you are 5 or 95!
