In the Kitchen objects   The Shed objects

Washing Day objects 
Items in each Box will stimulate conversation and questions about the past.
The items can be handled and Conversation Cards are used to begin a conversation about the past and how life has changed (or remained the same).
Curriculum links are available.

Each Box includes a Reminiscence Book that asks for comments and thoughts to be written in it so that in time, the Book will become an artefact in its own right and will encourage further discussion and act as a memory stimulus.

Boxes can be loaned for such occasions as a special school event (eg Grandparents Day), as a way of introducing Time, Continuity and Change in the classroom or in conjunction with a visit to a National Trust property.

Contact the National Trust to order and arrange collection.
