Mary Greg: The gallery objects come to school

We've created a traveling box of curiosities that brings actual gallery objects into school for your pupils to handle, discuss and use to create stories. The objects come from Mary Greg, a Victorian lady who donated her wonderful collection to the gallery in 1922 so that it could be used to educate children. Pupils will explore letters from Mary to help them investigate objects and create links to encourage conversation, stir the imagination and discover who Mary Greg was.
