Join us for a WW2: The Home Front workshop
During this two-hour workshop discover what life was like for children during the war years and evacuation.
As we are commemorating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, children will look at the impact that war had on the everyday activities, jobs and material things that we take for granted today through a range of activities and tasks.
- Writing name tags
- ID cards
- Postcards home
- Crawling into a shelter
- Handling a range of original and replica artefacts.
- Shop for rations from our friendly shop keepers on the street
- Try wartime food – if they’re feeling brave!
Supported by Arts Council funding through the Making a Mark in Tees Valley Programme.
The workshop lasts approximately 2 hours
Suitable for Key Stages 2
£50 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child
