Horning Primary School

The primary school at Horning was one of three schools visited for one day workshops in Autumn 2008, as part of a collaboration between the Sainsbury Centre and local campaign group, The Three Rivers way. Objects from the museum's Paget collection were used to stimulate the children's curiosity about their own natural and cultural environment, particularly in connection with  local Broads tourism, including how this might be transformed by climate change.This was a one day workshop introducing pupils to a general selection of objects from Papua New Guinea, from which they could make connections to the local surroundings. Our main focus was on colour and pattern. We were also seeking to make connections with the local Broads tourism industry, which is an important employer but unfortunately threatened by climate change and flooding.
