Format of the session

Each museum-led session is scheduled for two hours. The class will be taught by a museum teacher for an hour in the Greek galleries, then will do a self-led Greek session for the remaining hour. We will provide printable resources you can use for this. If you are bringing two classes, one class will have the Greek session for 2 hours and the other will do a self-led session in another part of the museum for 90 minutes, then breaking for lunch, before swapping over.
