one small candle may light a thousand,
light here kindled hath shone unto many...''
The Mayflower Pilgrim
Museum welcome school groups to learn about the Mayflower Pilgrim story.
All our Mayflower Pilgrim workshop
sessions have been carefully put together to enhance an educational visit and to
help teaching professionals meet their learning objectives. Our team of
educators deliver modules lasting 1hr each, enabling completion of 3 plus a
lunch break within the day.
For all ages of children our
fascinating story captures the imagination, discovering about life in Tudor
England, religion and its development, and using the powerful messages we
explore the concepts of tolerance and freedom, linking it to the importance of
reading and writing providing freedom for all today.
The children will also learn some
early American history, understand the roots of Thanksgiving, and explore the
concepts of migration.
Other modules are related to the
period such as art modules on still life and medieval pottery and a guided tour
around a local market town to investigate the development of English
The price for the the days
workshops including museum entry for children and staff, materials and
literature, coach parking is £4.50 per child. Our 'meal deal' lunch can be
provided for an additional £2.50 per head.
A pack is
available in advance to outline course content, leaning
outcomes and the National Curriculum. Souvenirs may be
