    Rock On!
    March 2019 - Bristol Museum & Art Gallery
    Year 3-6 children are given a unique opportunity to learn alongside experts from the University of Bristol as they investigate what a geologist does; find out how plate tectonics shape our geological landscape; identify types of rocks using their features and make a soil profile to take.

    Tudor Portraits
    The Red Lodge Museum
    Discover a Tudor gem in the heart of Bristol and learn about 16th century life. Our costumed interpreter, Dame Joan Young, will help Year 3-6 children learn about growing-up in a Tudor household and how to unlock the secret meaning of Tudor portraits.


    Blaise Castle House Museum
    Bring your Year 1-2 children to compare and contrast examples of toys across time in this hands-on session. Then use our museum trail to explore examples of old and traditional toys and make an illusion toy to take home.

    Discover Chocolate
    M Shed
    Did you know the first chocolate Easter egg was made in Bristol? Year 3-5 children can discover the city's links with the chocolate industry and try some fun hands-on activities to find out what it was like to work in a famous chocolate factory.
