What we can do for you
Help ensure a better future for the river through education by making a donation…
Getting cut off by the tide
Help to avoid children touching hands on faces
Thanks to generous funding from the second round of the Culture Recovery Fund #HereForCulture, Thames Explorer can continue to keep its team together and will be adapting more of our most popular schools’ programmes into outreach and online sessions. This means we will be able to continue to teach children about the geography and history of the River Thames without schools having to travel to our sites during Covid-19.
The new grant will also support the updating of existing learning resources, creating new outreach materials, some film-making and the development of more effective ways of keeping in touch with schools.
With our first grant from the Culture Recovery Fund we have been creating a new Zoom version of our Archaeology for All programme which will be available soon, and a new KS4 GCSE Fieldwork programme which will give students the chance to study the River Thames first hand to learn about this river from source to mouth and discover the human impact that has changed it.
With an earlier Heritage Emergency Fund grant the team has already completed the online adaptation of our most popular programme, KS2 Rivers & Environmental Issues – for more information on this programme go to our Schools page:
Schools will receive an interactive game pack that supports the study of habitats, food-chains as well as the causes, effects and solutions to pollution along the River Thames. The mats and cards can be kept by schools to use as an instant classroom display.
