In the Know – Half Term Enrichment Ideas
We have found some fun activities for your child to get wrapped up in. Now is the perfect time to learn something new and what better time to do it than during this half term! You should definitely consider letting your child join in on the fun, which these awesome events have to offer. Who said learning can’t be fun?
Dr Johnson’s House
For an interesting and rather offbeat outing, go and visit Dr Johnson’s House, this is also the place where he compiled the very first comprehensive English dictionary. Join in for an evening of fun and games. Your child can also explore the rooms after dark searching for hidden objects, match up words to their definitions and learn about 18th century medicine. Find out more about this event here. Tickets are £6 and £2.50 for children.
Banknotes and Bullion
On the 27th of October 2017 catch a tube on the Bank line and head off to the Bank of England Museum. Give lifting a real 13kg gold bar a try and get the load down on the history of bank notes. Your child will also get to hear about the scary urban legend of a ghost nun that haunts the Bank of England. If you feel brave then don’t miss out on wandering about the museum after-hours. Find out more about this event here.
National Maritime Museum
A visit to the National Maritime Museum on October 30th, 2017 is a must! The Museum has been taken over by ghosts and ghouls with a space twist. From ghost hunts to alien oceans and a makeshift Seastar science station, your child is guaranteed to have fun. There will be prizes to be won for the most out of this world costume.
