HOME EDUCATORS ONLINE LEARNING
Sadly, we can’t have Home Educator groups visiting the museum at the moment. However, we can offer some online sessions, specialising in KS2 Science and KS2 Arts and Crafts.
Each session will be interactive, informative and you will be provided with resources to help you discover more about the topic during and after the session. These resources will be sent to you the Friday before each online session. Any supplies required will be minimal and will involve items found in most households. The sessions will be accessible for those who cannot access the resources or supplies in advance.
The price is £4.50 per screen and sessions are all suitable 6-11 year olds (Upper and Lower KS2)
Sessions will run for 60 Mins and will be via ZOOM, once booked we will send you a ZOOM link in advance of the session.
