COVID-19 UPDATE: We are taking school bookings from the beginning of June 2021 and look forward to welcoming and inspiring your students. Each visit involves a workshop led by a member of museum staff followed by a self-led tour of the museum gallery. The cost per child is £3 plus VAT where applicable. We can also offer virtual tours and workshops, Discovery Boxes full of artefacts and resources that you can borrow for your classrooms, free classroom-based sessions and more. Contact our Learning and Access Officer Isobel Hood on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements further.
We currently offer three primary school sessions designed for KS2:
- NEW: Battle of Britain 80: The Heroes of Biggin Hill
- The Second World War through the eyes of Biggin Hill children
- Biggin Hill during the Battle of Britain
These sessions will involve object handling and enquiry-based activities. Following the session, pupils will be able to explore the museum using our school discovery tablet. They will learn about the real people based at Biggin Hill, watch interviews of people telling their own stories, find objects and images in the museum, and participate in activities and quizzes.
To book a session, contact our Access and Learning Officer Isobel Hood on email@example.com.
