Our virtual workshop is back this Spring!

The Story of the Mulberry Tree is a virtual workshop for Key Stages 1 (English and Science) and Key Stage 2 (English). We are trying to create a story about how the Mulberry Tree came to live in the garden at Hogarth’s House, but we’re a bit stuck, can your class help?

  • Key Stage 1 (English and Science) will create an interactive story and learn the ideal conditions for a tree to grow.
  • Key Stage 2 (English) will focus on their character development skills to imagine their character’s attributes and motivations.

This virtual workshop includes an introductory video with pre-session tasks, a 30-minute interactive session with a facilitator and a follow-up writing activity.

Hogarth At Home resources

During the first national lockdown, we released a set of cross-curricular resources for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils called Hogarth At Home. They were designed for at home learning as they require minimal resources and do not need to be printed.

As some pupils continue to be learning from home, including during self-isolation periods, these resources are still available to download.

In-classroom resources

Following on from the success of our Hogarth At Home resources, we have developed a series of in-classroom learning resources. A set of topics will be released each term of the 2020-2021 academic year, with offers for Key Stage 1 through to A Level.

Self-guided visits

Schools will be welcome to have a self-guided visit to Hogarth’s House during our opening hours, but we kindly request that schools inform us prior to any visits by contacting our Learning Officer. The rooms of our eighteenth-century house are small and we need to ensure we can accommodate your visit. Only one class will be allowed to visit at a time and we require a minimum of one adult to every four pupils.

Due to Covid-19 our self-guided visit offer is currently suspended. We will be reviewing this decision in Spring 2021 and hope to welcome you and your class to Hogarth’s House soon. Email our Learning and Engagement Manager Elizabeth Bryan to discuss this or other ways to engage by emailing Elizabeth.Bryan@Hounslow.gov.uk
