As well as offering sessions at the Museum site, we can also provide materials for your classroom. Our activity boxes can be used both to compliment a visit or as an alternative to travel. The packs encourage arts and crafts, literacy and enquiry skills.

The Great Alphabet Hunt
A fun introduction to the Dictionary with alphabet tiles, objects and letter vests to create a large class alphabet, ideal for Foundation or KS1 groups.

Boxes include easy instructions and cost just £10 per week when collected by the school. Please contact us to book your box, or for more information.

What teachers have to say about our Outreach boxes:

“What a great week we had using the box! Lots of learning opportunities indoors and out with activities easy to adapt to meet our nursery pupils through to year 2. The children loved finding the objects and producing their own books. Reluctant writers were particularly engaged, which was brilliant. Thanks!”

“Everything we needed was in the box, well organised, example pieces, quality of materials (love the end papers!), easy for children to make a successful end product. Very good!”
