Follow The Ship Education Project

The intention of Follow the Ship education project:


To create and then share Follow the Ship with the public – primarily school children – in The John Gibbins Gallery of The Longshed. 

Our intention is to add to what’s already being taught in schools so that local school children can learn more about the ship, and the Anglo-Saxon history in our local area in a “hands on” way.    

We expect it will be primarily based in The Longshed, but not limited to that structure – and we will be doing all we can to connect other community organisations, particularly those part of Woodbridge Historic Riverside.   

Outcomes
Students to get a much deeper appreciation of their Anglo Saxon heritage, cementing what they are learning already at school.
To have involved local schools, measured with a % of schools from the area  (over time)

Start building a solid platform which enables the appointment of an outstanding Education Officer for WRT.
Create a centre of education excellence, together with the Tide Mill and Woodbridge Museum, which is a sought after destination for schools & other related organisations to visit.

Who do we intend to reach?
Our prime audience, initially, is school age children/students in the Woodbridge and surrounding areas.  Our belief is that what we develop will also be of wider interest to people of all ages.
