The Duke of Wellington’s fine town house with an amazing art collection.
It's the childrens' first day as servants to the Duke. Mrs Perkins, his housekeeper, is on hand to tell them what their jobs will be and how she expects them to behave. Find out if you have what it takes to work below stairs in a grand house!
Every painting can tell a story. Pupils will learn to investigate the tales behind pictures from the Apsley collection.
Using portraits in the Apsley collection for inspiration, a story-teller tells the tale of a king. Students will develop key skills in creative writing and widen their descriptive language.
It’s not easy being a servant in a grand house like Apsley. Hannah the housemaid will engage your class in role play, object handling and discussion about how her life at Apsley differs from their home lives today.
A portrait tells much more than simply what a person looked like. Discover the hidden information in the Apsley portraits, as well as learning about face mapping and shading.
