Outreach – Bringing History to You!

Moments in Time

Our ‘Moments in Time’ sessions are led by one of our experienced educators who will take your pupils on an interactive and fun-filled journey through time. These engaging, hands-on and thought-provoking sessions are supported by a range of artefacts and resources that will help transport you back in time and bring the past to life.


The Egyptians – Find out why a Pharaoh faced a fitness test every 30 years and how the mummification process works.

The Greeks – Discover how Pheidippides became a hero and how a Greek called hero invented the vending machine.

The Maya – Where did the Maya live and what was their fascination with a sport involving a ball where they couldn’t use their hands?


Baghdad – Find out how Baghdad became a cultural centre of learning and knowledge and, at one stage, the biggest city in the world!



Edith Rigby – Suffragette
For UKS2 only. Explore the life and times of Preston’s Edith Rigby through written documentation and discuss and debate the issues of the day, why shouldn’t women vote?!

How do we find out about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages? Where does prehistory sit in the chronology of these islands and play the ‘What, Why, What’ game!

The Great Plague
