Open today 10am - 5pm
Taught by our specialist team, our Active Learning Sessions are targeted at upper Key Stage 2 through to A-Level students and beyond. Each session actively explores the causes, impacts and legacy of the Holocaust, engaging students through the use of artefacts, archives and, most importantly, survivor testimony. In addition to teaching key historical skills and concepts, we use the Holocaust to examine the contemporary themes and issues explored through Citizenship, R.E., SMSC and PREVENT education. Each session detailed below includes facilitated activities in both our Learning Room and Exhibition spaces.
