The Lightbox delivers sessions for Home Education groups so that they can combine educational activities with opportunities to socialise with other home-educating families. The benefits of museum visits are to make subjects more vivid and interesting for children and enhance their understanding. It can also improve confidence, knowledge and investigation skills, whatever their age or ability.
We offer various activity sessions that can be adapted for different age groups and can be linked to the National Curriculum if required. Some of the topics available are outlined in our Primary and Secondary sections but we are also able to work with groups to develop bespoke sessions that meet your topic requirements.
Group size: up to 30 children max per visit. Max number of adults set as 6 per group
Session duration: 2 hours
National curriculum topics covered: History, English, Art and Design, Design and Technology, Citizenship.
Advance booking is essential for all groups, including self-guided tours. Visiting groups who wish to have Lightbox led activity sessions must book at least two months in advance of their visit. In order to ensure an enjoyable visit, there is a maximum class size of 30 students per visit.
