This series shows inspiring examples of the benefits of building a long-term relationship with a gallery.
This programme visits The Roald Dahl Children's Gallery, where teacher Liza Craggs has been bringing pupils from Tanners Wood Primary school in Hertfordshire for the past five years. During this time, the school has built a good relationship with the gallery's education team, which allows sessions to be tailored to groups' specific requirements.
The main aim of the gallery is to bring Roald Dahl's books to life for its young visitors. There's a "discovery gallery" where children learn through investigation and an "imagination gallery" where they can find out about shadows, reflections, light and sound. This programme shows how the visit supports the cross-curricular work Liza's class are doing around the book George's Marvellous Medicine.
