The Education Team at the barn have devised a number of 'experience' days which link specifically to KS2 National Curriculum topics or as a Local History Study.
We also offer a workshop session on Chronology - Nailsea Through Time which covers a range of periods from 1480. We can also work with you to create bespoke visits on request.
Headed by Dr Jo Edwards, the Education team are a group of qualified teachers and heritage enthusiasts.
Together we create, teach and manage interactive learning experiences for schools.
We love to do things differently... and we love to learn.
