Early Years Explorers: Archaeology Dig

Wed 13th March 2024 10:00am

Book Tickets


This month grab your gloves, spade and magnifying glass, as we go on an archaeology dig!

We have designed these play sessions to engage our young learners in hands-on activities that will ignite their imaginations and deepen their understanding of the world around them.

Through these explorative play sessions, we aim to foster a sense of wonder and appreciation for our rich cultural heritage. By engaging in hands-on activities, our little ones will develop a deeper understanding of different cultures, traditions, and artistic expressions from around the world.

This Early Years Explorers will start with a short story-time session at about 10.05am, introducing the archaeology theme with a real museum artefact from hundreds of years ago! After the story, children can channel their inner-archaeologist by getting hands-on at our activity tables.
