Event description

Description

Our outreach sessions for SEND schools help students engage with The National Archives’ collection in an immersive and sensory way.

The sessions use document facsimiles, props, sounds and smells to bring the stories of the archive to your classroom.

The sessions are flexible and can be delivered to meet your students’ needs, and we can deliver multiple sessions in one day for different classes.

After you have completed a registration form on Eventbrite, a member of the team will contact you to discuss how we can tailor the sessions to meet your requirements.

You can also contact the Education team on educationbookings@nationalarchives.gov.uk if you have any questions

Sessions we teach:

Primary:

4099 is My Name

In this immersive experience, your students discover the story of William Towers contained within an archive box.

Through a sensory journey using signed call and response, students find out about William’s life in Victorian London and how he was sent to prison at the age of twelve!

This session is suitable for students with ASC, MLD, SLD and PMLD, and is available at The National Archives or at your school.


Secondary:

Choosing for the Archives

In this interactive session, your students find out about different people’s stories from the archives. Using documents, images and sensory storytelling, they explore the lives of individuals such as Windrush passenger Sam King and Elizabeth I.

Students then make decisions about what they feel is important to keep and choose objects to add to the archive box.

This session is suitable for students with ASC, MLD, SLD and PMLD, and is available at The National Archives or at your school.
