Educational Programmes for Schools: The World of Medieval Nicosia


Educational Programmes for Schools: The World of Medieval Nicosia

The World of Medieval Nicosia

 

An Educational Programme organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Culture, suitable for Primary School Children (Grade 5).

 

The programme is exploring Medieval Nicosia (Frankish Period – Venetian Period).  In the first part of the programme, the children visit the Leventis Municipal Museum’s Galleries of Medieval Nicosia, where they explore 5 educational stations. At every station they “meet” an inhabitant of Medieval Nicosia.

 

Additionally by researching the finds of every educational station, the children learn about medieval ceramics, meet the last queen of Cyprus Caterina Cornaro, take part in a discussion about the Frankish and Venetian Walls of the city of Nicosia and find clues referring to the siege of Nicosia by the Ottomans.

 

The second section of the programme includes an interactive theatrical workshop.
