We currently offer two workshops for schools and home-schooled groups. We are developing more and may be able to offer a bespoke session or run an outreach session. For more information please contact our Learning Officer at email@example.com
The Case of the Missing Romans
Key Stage 1 (75 minutes)
It is the year AD41 and Roman Emperor Claudius is leading his victorious army across Britain…will they conquer Wimbledon?
In this workshop, pupils investigate ‘The Case of the Missing Romans’. Was Wimbledon invaded? The class should be ready to become Special Agents, identify clues, analyse the quality of evidence and use reasoning skills to discover if the Romans came to Wimbledon, and if they stayed long enough to call it home.
National Curriculum History KS2 objectives:
- A local history study
- Look, use and evaluate different types of evidence
- Know more about Roman invaders in Wimbledon
Cost: Currently no charge
This interactive workshop will challenge students to step into the shoes of three children, Norman, Audrey and Anne who lived in Wimbledon during the Blitz.
What their lives were like? Did they feel safe? Would it be best to stay at home or become an evacuee?
Taking place in Wimbledon Museum, which was used as housing during the Blitz, pupils will analyse maps, look at objects and photos to learn about the wartime experiences of the three children.
