Taking a trip along to the Museum of London Docklands and stepping back in time to doscover what we can learn from the remains of people and possessions left in London over the years.
What can we learn about a person from their bones? We will recreate a Roman Londoner based on the clues left behind in their skeletons. Was your Roman Londoner a wealthy merchant, farmer, slave or Roman soldier? You will get to decide in this interactive crafts session and come away with facts about life as a Roman in London all those many years ago.
A literacy themed day as we explore one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson.
Creep into a magical world of forests, miniature houses, dragons and other creatures. Can you spot The Gruffalo? Can you Squash and Squeeze around a life-sized cow? What’s that flying overhead, could it be Zog? Be The Smartest Giant in Town, climb through The Highway Rat’s cave, rock hop through the Monkey Puzzle jungle, discover the underwater worlds of Tiddler and The Snail and the Whale and take your seat for the ride of your life with The Room on the Broom.
At the Story Centre our favourite books will come alive as we explore the art of rhyme, story telling and even attempt our own rhymes and stories. We will also explore the imaginative playground and understand what it takes to be a great story teller. A day of Literacy, arts, crafts and play!
