Support Your Child’s Return To School

As a new school year begins, the Hunt Museum Education Team is excited to share online cross-curricular primary school resources to help ease your child into the new school year! You may wish to share these with your child’s teacher.

These resources have been created for third and fourth classes, but are flexible enough to be used with younger or older children.
