Calling all KS1 and KS2 school teachers – our ‘Lost Luggage’ Loan Box programme provides schools with an opportunity to learn about the history of the railway and the local area through a carefully curated collection of objects, activities and curriculum-focused lesson plans. ‘Lost Luggage’ allows pupils to explore the life of real people from Leeming Bar in the 1920s. The Loan Boxes provide a hands-on multi-sensory learning experience that teachers can use in the classroom. The boxes can also be used in conjunction with schools’ own lessons plans. Along with a variety of themed objects, the boxes also include a digital bank of activities, resources and PowerPoint presentations. Please note that these Loan Boxes are available free of charge for schools that book one of our educational visits.

Our KS1 Loan Box, Emily Plews’ Trip to the Seaside, and our KS2 Loan Box, The Station Master’s Big Day, are both available to hire for two weeks for only £20.
