Engaging Pupils with History and Science

Every object tells a story; in our educational sessions we tell stories using the objects and buildings, engaging the pupils with the subject matter in a way that helps to make history and science real.

All talks are suitable for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and are also available in forms suitable for KS3 & KS4. Most sessions can also be adapted to KS1 on request – contact us at for details.


For further details on our current Education Sessions, please see the downloadable PDFs below.


Although there are obvious curriculum links, for example Tudors ‘Daily Life at Southchurch Hall’ with Tudor Life under the History curriculum, there are also substantial cross curricula elements. For example, Design and Technology comes into The Round Sound Learning Show, which also relates to aspects of Victorian life.
