Key Stage One & Key Stage Two

The Heritage Centre is a brilliant resource to use with primary children and can be exploited in so many different ways. We offer visits with a guided tour of the watermill, showing how corn is ground into flour and how the power of the water was also used to work the sawmill, enabling the craftsman to make planks, turned furniture and even coffins! The blacksmith also had his forge here, this enables children can see the full range of traditional crafts that have been at the centre of daily life for many centuries. We offer several living history workshops, which are fantastic for bringing a subject to life: Wartime Gower, Medieval life, Romans & Celts. We also offer themed visits to the centre with topics such as pirates and fairytale being very popular. These workshops are led by a fully trained costumed performer and we are happy to help you to exploit the session as much as possible by advising on costumes and preparatory or follow-up work. We offer guided walks with a fully qualified B.E.L.A. guide, to places such as Pennard Castle, Three Cliffs Bay or the Neolithic burial chamber of Green Cwm. As the Heritage Centre is home to various craftspeople, we also offer craft workshops in a variety of media including pottery making and woollen mill crafts. Please see the downloadable pack for full details of what is on offer or give us a call to check availability.
