We offer sessions for Primary schools from Key Stage two upwards. The diverse nature of our archive materials means that we can support learning in most subject areas including History, English, Science, Mathematics, Art and Design.
Sessions usually last two hours and can include:
- An introduction to Mass Observation and what an archive is and meet MO the Bear
- A behind-the-scenes tour of The Keep, with a chance to see where the documents are stored
- Opportunity to handle original material
We offer 'off-the-peg' sessions on the following themes:
We can also offer bespoke sessions on other topics tailored to suit specific areas of study.
If you can't come to The Keep for a school visit we have an Outreach resource case to hire for use in the classroom, which is full of props and learning resources.

CPD sessions for teachers focusing on how to use the Mass Observation Archive to enhance teaching and learning, can also be arranged.
