Home Education


Supporting home education

We recognise that learning takes many forms and are delighted to welcome home educators to visit our Museum on any day during our open season (30 March to 29 October 2020).  Annual Pass holders can benefit from free entrance throughout the season, and we are pleased to offer non Annual Pass families who home educate, a reduced admission rate of £5.50 per child on weekdays during the Bucks school term.  Adults will be charged at the standard admission price.

Home Education Learning Days

The Museum runs special themed home education learning days. The next learning day will be on Thursday 5th March 2020, 11am – 3pm and will have a Literacy theme to celebrate World Book Day 2020.

During our Literacy themed Home Educator day we will be celebrating the joy of reading through a selection of different texts and interactive activities.  There will also be lots of opportunities for your children to explore our historic spaces and step back in time.  We will have an author in residence for your children to meet and talk to, chances to enjoy listening to story-telling and engage in some creative writing, and a variety of workshops and activities that make links with the following: Little Red Hen, Goldilocks, Three Little Pigs, Aesop’s Fables, Wolf Brother, Goodnight Mr Tom and Private Peaceful (final details TBC and may be subject to change).

To help children engage with our rescued and restored buildings we will offer a variety of hands-on, authentic activities.  Some of these will be led by costumed interpreters to help your child enjoy an immersive experience.  Your child is welcome to visit in costume also.
