Let’s Explore Transport

Pupils go on their own transport journey throughout the museum using maps, role play and our amazing transport collection.  Children will develop noticing and drawing skills whilst recording different modes of transport including a full size train and a range of vehicles made in Bradford by the Jowett family.  Pupils work individually and in groups to make a collaborative map including drawing and text to take back to school.

You can also visit our Tram Shed before or after the workshop to see one of Bradford’s last trams and a trolleybus plus a range of carriages outside.

1.5 hour session at £102 per class    (Maximum 33 pupils)
