Use eyewitness accounts, documents and photographs to build a picture of children’s lives during the Blitz.

Become a history detective in this interactive and exploratory workshop.

Discover Ken’s personal story of living in London’s Docklands as a child during World War Two, captured on film by the museum in 2020. Develop enquiry and evidence-based skills, while engaging with authentic lived experience. Empathise with personal experiences of evacuation, rationing and bombing, using objects and testimony that are relevant and poignant today.

Your booking will also include a 20 minute introduction to the Docklands at War gallery and self-directed time in the space.

This exciting workshop tells stories that won’t be found anywhere else!

Please note this workshop is for upper KS2 students (ages 9-11).
