School visits to The London Bridge Experience can now be accompanied by educational packs which are suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 groups.
The new educational packs have been created to aid learning, whether it be used during a visit or as a follow up or even as prep before visiting.
The educational packs
The educational packs outline the key elements and historical periods that are associated with London Bridge and incorporate activities that can further develop pupils’ experiences.
The pack is free and can be downloaded prior to visiting from The London Bridge Experience.
The 20-page pack includes details of the attraction’s history, along with information to coincide with the characters you’ll meet when you’re there.
The activities and information included link with the National Curriculum and incorporate English, History and Design.
Among some of the activities are poster making, creating timelines and letter writing, and are suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 classes.
The London Bridge Experience allows students to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of the London Bridge and surrounding area throughout the centuries.
Pupils will start by learning about 53AD when London Bridge was a military style pontoon bridge. Then they will travel through to when it was destroyed by Queen Boudica’s rebel army in 60AD.
The experience goes on to take groups through to 1066AD and the Normans, and will discuss the many fires that the bridge went through including the Great Fire of London. Schools will also find out about Jack the Ripper and the roles of the people who worked and lived on the bridge.
School rates are available and you can combine your educational trip with visits to other London attractions, including Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and Planet Hollywood.
