Key Stage 1 workshops

We offer a wide range of workshops for schools. You can build a day by choosing 1 hour and 2 hour workshops to suit your needs, perhaps adding a self-guided visit to the galleries too. Or have us come to you to deliver a classroom workshop.

Our workshops focus on historical, geographical and scientific themes, but include elements of maths, literacy and citizenship too.
