Bexley: The Slavery Connection

These Teachers’ Resource Notes offer a history of Bexley’s connections with the Transatlantic Slave Trade and a set of teaching activities using the Bexley Museum and Archive Collections. We also have a loans box to support this subject in the classroom. Both offer advice on teaching this emotive area of history.

Please note the Sections 4 and 5 use images already downloaded with Sections 1-3. See Teacher’s Resource Pack for details.

Environmental Sessions

Grow your own veggies, go on a mini-beast safari, learn all about fair trade, dress up as a butterfly or meet a real owl! Pick the session that suits you the most. Also learn about Mr L Newman and his son Hugh who were world famous lepidopterists and had a butterfly farm in Old Bexley from 1890s – 1960s. These resources provide information about the symmetry of butterflies, their life cycle and their place in the wider environment.



Whether you have budding authors, drama queens or bear hunters we have a session to suit all ages! Choose from storytelling, writing or drama.


Find out how the Roman Army brought more than weapons to Britain sowing the seeds of a different culture and many of the plants we know today.

Please see the resource for How Does Your Garden Grow under Environmental Sessions.
