Outreach

If your school is less than fifty miles from York, our outreach service offers you the opportunity to invite characters from Viking or Tudor England into your classroom.

Using a range of artefacts, resources and activities, our interactive learning hosts will help your class discover how life was different in the past and they can cover a range of themes, including trading, home life, battles, beliefs, clothing, games and medicine.

After making your outreach booking, you will be contacted by a member of the Learning Team who will help you to choose a selection of the various optional activities to be included in your session.

All outreach sessions start at £175 for up to 40 children. For more information about booking an outreach session, please download our handy teachers’ guide to outreach here. To place a booking, usually you can contact us via phone or email but our team are currently unavailable as our attractions are temporarily closed. If you have an urgent query, please email jorvikgroup@yorkat.co.uk.

Virtual Outreach

Wherever you are in the world, you can invite a character from history into the classroom with our Virtual Outreach sessions.

Your students can spend 45 minutes discovering what life was like in the Tudor period. View a variety of artefacts, hear tales of town life and then put your own prepared questions to our Tudor townsperson.

Each virtual outreach session costs £50 and uses the Skype video-conferencing platform. You will need to set up a Skype account and check with your IT team that you can make calls to accounts outside of the schools network. Skype can be downloaded for FREE here: www.skype.com
