About

Welcome to the Spring Season of Amazing Artefacts - Home Educators Monthly Sessions!
Each month, we will take part in a variety of different hands on activities inspired by one or more items from the collections. Each season, we will explore a new theme, which for the Spring Season will be 'Toys and Games'.

Spring season dates and times are as follows:
Wednesday 13th Mar (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)
Wednesday 10th April (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)
Wednesday 8th May (10:30-11:30 Juniors, 12-1 Seniors)

Sessions are designed to be active and accessible for a mix of ages and abilities with 2 separate sessions for younger or older children. The morning session will be aimed at slightly younger children aged approximately 5-8, nicknamed our Juniors, and the afternoon session will be aimed at the slightly older children aged approximately 9+, nicknamed our Seniors. If you would like to attend as a family group with mixed ages, then just pick whichever session you feel would be most suitable for the group as a whole.
If you would like to let us know about any specific considerations for your children then we would welcome this, just get in touch.

Tickets need to be purchased for each child attending, but grown ups do not need to purchase a separate ticket. It usually works best for the younger or less confident children if grown ups stay and join in with activities. Whereas for older or more confident children it is usually fine for grown ups to not stay in the session, although they will need to stay within the museum building whilst the session is taking place. Tickets cost £18 per child for the 3 month seasonal block and can be booked via Ticketsource or by popping into or phoning the museum directly.

Attendees will be encouraged to continue their learning at home between sessions and the year will finish with a display of the children's work from all of the sessions within the museum.

Rusty Club (YAC) Membership - Please note that we do some of the same crafts or activities in Rusty Club sessions as we do in Home Educator sessions, so if you decide to join in with both programmes there may be some sessions with duplicated topics, so we tend to advise choosing one programme or the other.
