Home Educators Session – The 20th Century
Introducing the fourth and final session in our ‘New Arrivals’ series! Over the past year, we have been exploring different points in history, starting with the Bronze Age and moving through time to the present, when new cultures and communities have made Britain their new home.
This final session will explore a variety of different communities or occasions when people have come to Britain (or moved to a different area) and settled in their new location. We are currently confirming details with different groups, but we hope to have a few members of different communities that now call Weston home coming to chat to us about their experiences. We will also be taking part in some interactive activities to explore the experiences of others and other people’s cultures.
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.
Sessions are designed to be active and accessible for a range of ages and abilities, but are generally aimed at Key Stage 2 level. 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 £5 per child and can be booked via Ticketsource or by popping into or phoning the museum directly.
