Welcome to the Autumn Season of Amazing Artefacts – Home Educators Monthly Sessions!
Each month, we will take part in a variety of different hands on activities inspired by an item from the collections. Each season, we will explore a new theme, which for the Autumn Season will be ‘Who Found It?’.
Autumn season dates and times are as follows:
Wednesday 21st September (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)
Wednesday 19th October (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)
Wednesday 16th November (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)
Sessions are designed to be active and accessible for a range of ages and abilities and (following feedback) this season we will be trying out a new format of having 2 sessions on the day. The morning session will be aimed at slightly younger children aged approximately 5-9, nicknamed our Juniors, and the afternoon session will be aimed at the slightly older children aged 10+, nicknamed our seniors. If you would like to attend as a family group with mixed ages, then just pick whichever session you feel would be most suitable for the group as a whole.
If you would like to let us know about any specific considerations for your children then we would welcome this, just get in touch.
Tickets need to be purchased for each child attending, but parents/carers do not need to purchase a separate ticket (although they will need to stay within the museum whilst the session is taking place and are welcome to join in to support their child, if suitable). Tickets cost £15 per child for the 3 month seasonal block and can be booked via Ticketsource or by popping into or phoning the museum directly.
Attendees will be encouraged to continue their learning at home between sessions and the year will finish with a display of the children’s work from all of the sessions within the museum.
Rusty Club (YAC) Membership – Please note that we occasionally do the same crafts or activities in Rusty Club sessions as we do in Home Educator sessions, so if you decide to join in with both programmes there may be some sessions with slightly duplicated topics.
