The Victorian murder investigation had the children hooked - a great day for all. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 18077 )

A very well organised event by the museum. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17915 )




Brilliant characters and acitivites! (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17860 )




Children still buzzing about the trip today. The way the Victorian workhouse was brought to life through a narrative was excellent and will provide the children with a great scenario to write newspaper reports. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17820 )

The Stone Age Day experience was excellent. Lots of hands on activities. The pace was just right giving children enough time to try each activity but not for long enough that they lost interest. The pitch was also perfect for the year 3-5 age group. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16745 )




Very well organised day. The people leading the activities are great and the day went very quickly. Would highly recommend this venue. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16681 )

This was a very good visit with lots of hand-on experience about Neolithic life. Children were able to use their learning in their writing and history work. Next time I will book the visit for slightly later in the topic as there was a little confusion between Mesolithic and Neolithic when we were working in class and it is good to go through chronologically.
