We want to redesign our exhibit and guided tours to cover topics of the curriculum to make the Barn a suitable venue for school excursions.

We want to make an exhibit appropriate for ages 7+ to deliver a fun, engaging educational tour to teach topics of history and geography for school visitors. We will introduce the children to the barn with an engaging animated potted history of the Barn and the significance of it within local history, narrated by a familiar voice. We will take the children on a walking tour of the Barn, Granary, Manor House and Church where the children might take part in arrow sharpening or bell pulling. We have a scavenger hunt that navigates children around the Barn and Hamlet seeking out answers & driving discussion. The information boards will be redesigned to be double sided, one side being a detailed account of the barn, and the other side will be imagery and illustrations relating to curriculum e.g. Saxon,Roman/WW2.

What we'll deliver:

  • Double sided information boards so we can flip our exhibit for relevant audience.
  • Interactive exhibit to be used on school visits and open days
  • A tour designed for school visits
  • An engaging video relevant to the age group

Why it's a great idea:

We will be creating a new space for local schools to bring children to learn about local history. Aspects of WW2 and The Saxon invasion. We will be engaging children in the importance of heritage and conservation.

Steps to get it done:

  • All tour guides trained and DBS checked
  • Exhibit designed
  • Tour designed
  • Advertise to schools
  • trial guided tour
  • community engagement

We hope the enhancements that we want to make will also attract our regular visit base to bring their grandchildren and become family friendly. Rather than just historians or architecture enthusiasts
