Home Educators Session – The Saxons
Introducing the third in our series of ‘New Arrivals’ sessions! Over the next year, we will be 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. 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.
This session will explore the Anglo-Saxons, exploring where they came from and how their culture changed in the centuries they were here before the invasion of the Vikings. We will look at what items they brought to this country, as well as their language and customs.
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.
