Boy at an activity session

Home Education

We have launched regular sessions for home educated children with one taking place each term.

Children can take part in a variety of Roman-themed activities, including crafts, a museum trail and a chance to handle original Roman objects. The sessions are suitable for children from 4 years and their parents. Our tip is to take part in the activity before exploring the museum.

The Roman Baths is a favourite for children and their teachers studying the Romans and Roman Britain. We offer self-guided trails for families, as well as a children's audioguide narrated by author Michael Rosen.

The next session takes place on Thursday 5 September from 10am-midday. We will be finding out about the Beau Street Hoard, a large hoard of Roman coins discovered very near to the Roman Baths. We will have some of the real coins to look at and will be trying out a range of fun maths-based activities using replica coins and money bags. The activities are designed to be a fun way of tackling maths problems and all link to characters at the Roman Baths. They mostly call on logic and visual skills, and the range of activities will suit a variety of ability levels.

The session will begin with a short talk, followed by object handling as a group. We will then split into smaller groups at tables to try out the activities using coins and money bags. Workshop leaders will be on hand to help out and to rotate the activities.
