Bring the past into your classroom!
We have a range of education loan boxes for you to borrow. They are aimed primarily at Key Stage 2 but can be used by other age groups, SEN groups or home learners. The boxes cover a variety of topics, such as life in Roman Britain, Viking trade and craft, everyday Tudor life and exploring archaeology.
- Each themed box will contain teacher’s notes, a variety of period-specific artefacts, replicas and games.
- The Viking and Archaeology boxes contain some dressing up costumes and the Roman and Tudor boxes contain a selection of writing materials.
- The boxes cost £10.00 each to borrow for the first week, followed by £5.00 for each additional week.
- Boxes need to be picked up from and returned to DIG, St Saviourgate, York.
If you would like to book or view a loan box please phone our Reservations team on 01904 615505.
