Bring your class to the Museum

 

The Museum is the perfect place to see the writing process in action by one of its masters. Pupils will discover how they can use the same techniques themselves and find out more about Roald Dahl's life while exploring the fun, interactive galleries in a facilitated session.

There are a range of exciting sessions for Years 2-4 and Years 5-8 around themes such as crafting characters, editing and redrafting and unlocking ideas and inspiration. There are two types of session: galleries-based and archive-based. Both types are based around a key literacy area which will be the focus throughout your visit.

Galleries-based sessions - £205

These sessions last 90 minutes and are suitable for up to 32 pupils. They begin at 10am or 12.30pm.

Archive-based sessions - £240

These sessions last 180 minutes and are suitable for up to 32 pupils. They begin at 11am.

Included in the cost of a visit are:
• One free adult place for every six children, and free 1-to-1 support
• A Sparky Schools Information Pack to help you prepare for the day
• Terrific Teacher Golden Tickets to gain free entry to the Museum in order to carry out your risk assessment in advance of your trip
• All learning resources and materials needed throughout your visit
• A dedicated lunch area for your school as well as an area to leave coats and bags during the day

You can combine all sessions with a free self-guided village trail. You can lead this walk to discover inspiration for Roald Dahl's stories in the local area.

The Amanda Conquy Travel Bursary

Many schools need to hire coaches or pay train fares to visit the Museum. While this is not a problem for some schools, it prevents others who might not able to afford these costs from visiting. The Museum’s Travel Bursary scheme is set up to identify schools which might be most in need of financial support. The Museum can offer up to £450 towards travel costs for ten schools each academic year. Get in touch at learning@roalddahlmuseum.org for more details and an application form.
