New Primary School sessions launched for VE Day anniversary
The museum has created exciting new Primary School sessions to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day. The sessions are hands-on and immersive history.
An assembly or assemblies for KS1 or KS2 taken by a retired history teacher. This would be free of charge if one or more of the other options were taken up.
One hour lessons given in the school led by the former history teacher and possibly a World War 2 Home Guard re-enactor. This would be supported by handling objects. There is a charge of £3.50 per student.
90 minute session at the museum. The museum can take up to about 35 students. The class would be split into three groups. So each group would discover more about a Home Guard soldier in the UK, a World War 2 on active service abroad, and an activity - make a memorial to remember soldiers and civilians during the conflict. This would be supported by real objects and there would be chance to try on uniforms and look at the museum to see the World War 2 displays. £4 per student, with a minimum charge of £80.
