THEME DAYS for school year 2016-2017 are now open for booking! Children will enjoy a full day of workshops discovering how people lived in Britain in times gone by. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in period costume (with warm clothes underneath!) for a total immersion in history. The smells and sounds will make the period come to life and enhance the children's learning. We now offer Stone Age Days through to World War II Days, and many other periods in between. Examples are Roman Days, Anglo-Saxon Days, Viking Days and Victorian Christmas, to name but a few.

Our award-winning historical Theme Days run from 10am to 2.35pm and cost £9 per child with a generous free-adult ratio*. This price includes all workshops and activities, all-day admittance to Kent Life, free parking, a room to store bags and have lunch, as well as free downloadable risk assessments and a free familiarisation visit for the lead teacher if required. Children take part in a caroussel of workshops, moving around in their group. You will be sent out a timetable for your class before the day.
