1 Planning Your Programme We will liaise with you to design a programme that fits your timings and requirements, wherever possible. Workshops can take up to 30 pupils per session. If you wish to bring a larger group we will programme several workshops to run concurrently. We encourage all teachers and group organisers to come for a free preliminary visit to plan your programme. An example of a typical Primary History Programme Session 1 Break Session 2 Lunch Session 3 Free Time Why not: Come in World War 2 dress. We can provide guidelines. Evacuation Special Programme Prepare for War, 1¼ hours (classroom based Activity Workshop) World War 2 exhibition workshop, 45 minutes (exhibition based Activity Workshop) Rationing, up to 1 hour (classroom based Activity Workshop) Explore the Museum with own teachers & supervisors. Bring a World War 2 packed lunch for the day. We can supply a list of appropriate foods and containers. Ask your evacuees to write a kit list of 12 items they would take with them if they were evacuated today. A worksheet is available. Ask your evacuees to write brown labels for their lapels they might like to choose a 1940s name to write alongside their own. Evacuation Special Resource Pack (available to visiting schools at 4.95 each) The resource pack is intended to complement the workshops offered to schools visiting for an Evacuation Special. It contains the following sheets: Letter home Codebreaking (maths) Drills chart Where was the war fought? Where were children sent? Where did Dad go? The British Empire Keep young and beautiful exercises for school children Medicines in 1939 Weapons used in the later war years Make a gas mask Comparing diets the 1940s versus today Investigating the Museum Halls A gallery investigation using a worksheet or led by a Museum Explainer (if available) can support the learning achieved in the activity workshops. Please let us know if you would like us to send a worksheet for you to photocopy prior to your visit or if you would like an Explainer to be available whilst you are exploring the Museum. Other programmes for Primary Schools please ask us for details: What Are We Remembering on Remembrance Day? This programme only runs in the week before Remembrance Sunday. Science and Technology Activity Workshops. Art and Aviation for Primary Schools If you wish to make a booking for a visit to the Museum please contact Tim Creegan or Julia Hodson on , website:

2 Planning Your School Visit Pre-Booking: This is essential for all groups to guarantee a pre-booked entrance rate. Please see enclosed sheet for prices. To book please phone the Museum s Education Department on or us: Your contacts are Julia Hodson (Head of Visitor Services), Tim Creegan (Education Officer) or Hilary Sketchley (Visitor Services). We will try to accommodate your group s needs subject to prior notice and agreement. Opening Hours Between November and the end of March until Between April and the end of October until During the winter months, November to the end of March, the Museum is closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays. We are also closed on the 24th, 25th and 26th of December. Please contact us or check our website for definitive dates. Payment Payment can be made in cash, by cheque, credit card or invoice. If the latter, please ensure that the ticket box staff have FULL details of the institution to be invoiced. If cash payment is to be made it greatly speeds up entry if groups pool their entrance fees before arriving at the ticket box. Accessibility / Disabled Visitors We have successfully hosted many visits by groups with specific needs and will do what we can to accommodate your group s needs. The main entrance to the Museum is up a flight of stairs. There is a ground level entrance for those who cannot easily manage these stairs. This is signposted and entrance is gained via a buzzer that alerts Museum staff. Most of the Museum is accessible to wheelchairs. We have a limited number of wheelchairs available for visitors use. Visitors with visual impairments may have close, tactile access to the aircraft. For more details on the facilities and programmes available for your group please contact us. Group Size & Supervision of Groups Whilst we do not wish to restrict the size of visiting groups we may need to make special arrangements to accommodate them. Please contact us as early as possible to secure and plan your visit. Supervision of groups is the responsibility of the teachers, group leaders or other nominated adults in the party. Please ensure that such persons are aware of what is expected of them. Close supervision is especially relevant in the Museum Shop and during the Carrier Experience and no one under 16 is permitted in the latter unless accompanied by an adult. Above all it must be impressed on groups that NO RUNNING is allowed in the Museum. Aircraft have a surprising number of sharp edges and an impact can result in injury. Location of Site The Museum is located on the B3151 just south of the A303 in Somerset near Ilchester. The Museum is well signposted from the A303. The Museum covers a site of about 3.5 hectares (4 aircraft hangers) so you will need a minimum of 2-3 hours to see all the exhibitions. Risk Assessment We recommend that leaders of visiting groups prepare a risk assessment before the visit. Guidelines to assist you are available on request. We offer all group leaders the chance to make a free preliminary visit to the Museum. Free Staff Admission One member of staff may come in free for every 10 pupils. If you have pupils with special needs more free places may be allocated as appropriate. Please ask for details. Lunch Facilities and Vehicle Parking During the summer months groups are invited to use the large grassed area at the front of the Museum where they may eat packed lunches. Primary pupils may use the Adventure Playground. During cold or wet weather groups may use the Swordfish Centre adjacent to the Museum s Restaurant, if it is available. If it is not, we will make every effort to find a dry and warm room. We ask your co-operation in leaving these areas tidy and free of litter. There are spaces for up to 9 coaches in the main car park. If you are using minibuses please park in the car parking area if possible. All vehicle parking at the Museum is free.
