Home Ed Day - 5 Jan 2023

Join us on the 5 January for a bespoke Home Education Day. We are running our popular Discovering Animals (for KS1) and Skeletons (for KS2) workshops. 

To support your time in the galleries, download and print our self-guided tours or gallery trails (see the links at the bottom of this page). We have clipboards and pencils which you can use.

Discovering Animals workshop (KS1) 10.15-11.00
Explore a range of different animals and compare their features. Discover how and why scientists sort animals into groups and have a go yourself.

Skeletons workshop (KS2) 11.30-12.15
Uncover why animals have skeletons and the variety of forms among animals. Focusing on vertebrate skeletons, predict what species the real skeletons come from.

To ensure there is space for other children we ask that children only attend one workshop.

How to book visits and workshops

For questions and bookings, please email or call us on +44 (0)20 7942 6177.

All of our workshops are available to book. Each workshop needs a minimum of 10 children and each child can attend one workshop. We recommend grouping children by age or working level so they can attend the most suitable workshop.

We ask for a few adults to volunteer as group leaders within the workshop and may ask for some adults and younger children to remain in the galleries due to the size of the room.

For workshops and general visits, we recommend booking at least six weeks in advance.

When booking please provide the following details:

  • Lead organiser and contact details
  • Number of children and number of children in each age group
  • Number of adults
  • Workshop
  • Arrival and departure time
  • Special or mobility needs
