Since 2011, we have offered an extensive range of learning activities and resources alongside our annual Winter Exhibition. These have included family activities and events, free on-site storytelling workshops for schools, and teachers’ resource packs for classroom lessons (downloadable to the right, or at the bottom if you are on a mobile or tablet).
And now we want to do more…
As part of the Winter Exhibition, we offer a variety of free family art activities and workshops inspired by the objects and themes within the exhibition. In 2020, we started talking to some of central London’s most creative community projects to see how we could work with them throughout the year to animate, energise and open up our wonderful house.
In 2021, we will be expanding our programme to work in partnership with targeted community groups in a range of professionally-led crafts and cultural workshops, tours and projects inspired by Two Temple Place – its history, architecture, and rich cultural context.
Contact us if you are a London-based not-for-profit organisation working with families, young people, and older residents from all walks of life, to talk about how we might work with you to unlock Two Temple Place and the complex history of the Astors…
Our free Teacher Resource packs 2011-2020 have been produced alongside each Winter Exhibition, but also function as valuable stand-alone resources, which can be used year after year in your school.
The packs include a variety of schemes and resources to support teaching in subjects such as: Art & Design, Maths, PHSCE, Music, English, Science and History.
Find all you need to arrange a visit with your class to Two Temple Place for one of our free workshops between January and April every year.
With subjects including English, Maths, Science, Art and History our resource packs provide exciting learning activities for KS1 & KS2.
‘Love the workshop – got to do ART! Surreal.’
Young Sussex Modernism Visitor, 2017
‘The workshop leaders were outstanding – the children were captivated by their stories and activities from start to finish.’
St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School, 2014
‘The chance to really look at an eclectic mix of artifacts instead of racing around an enormous museum pushing buttons randomly, was really appreciated! The story-telling skills and the use of appropriate language for the age (and mixed ability) of the group was really great.’
Sudbourne School, 2015
‘We loved the workshop! It was very interactive, interesting, well lead and fun! It allowed the children to tap further into their creative side with a more personal touch’
Henry Cavendish Primary School, 2017
