Pie Corbett Event; a success!

Wednesday, 24 April 2013



Thank you to all who made it to yesterday's event at the National Maritime Museum!
We had a fantastic day and according to the feedback, you did too!

"Pie Corbett delighted and inspired both the Teachers and the Museum's Learning team with his charismatic presentations. Using objects, paintings and manuscripts from the National Maritime Museum's vast and varied collections, he expertly demonstrated the potential of using museum collections as creative starting points for literacy. From pirates and explorers, to ships and stars, Pie unlocked a treasure trove of themes and ideas to inspire budding writers of all ages across the Primary phase."
 
Anna Salaman, Head of Learning at the National Maritime Museum
