      Learning Session for Home Educators – Time Detectives

      Our popular workshop for schools, Time Detectives, especially for home educators - book your child or children on to take part in a session with other home educated children. You will be greeted at the entrance by our facilitators who will deliver the first part of the session in the Victorian Gallery. This session is focused on historical enquiry, and the children will be asked to work in groups to try and identify some mystery objects. They will then be taken on a tour of our Victorian street to find out about their objects, and what life would have been like in Victorian times. Learning objectives By the end of the sessions learners will: Have handled and investigated Victorian objects. Have learned about historical changes through studying an appropriate range of sources of information (ref. History NC KS2). Be able to ask and answer questions, and to select information relevant to the focus of the inquiry (ref. History NC KS2).   Sessions held at 10am-12pm and 1-3pm.   FAQs   Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
