Book now for Spring Term 2021!

In this session we use our full size replica of the Bayeux Tapestry as a wonderful resource for the teaching and learning of the Saxon/ Norman period and illustrate the events of 1066 and the death of Edward the Confessor.  With activities, objects, videos and HD images from the tapestry we will inspire children to reflect on history, symbology, story-telling and art bringing the past to life.

Resources for this session include:

  • Downloadable resources to prepare for the session
  • Activities for children to get involved in the session
  • Videos to explore the tapestry and museum objects
  • Downloadable resources and ideas for follow-up activities in the classroom
