Resources - Activity Sheets
Milestones can offer you a range of different resources for use on your visit. On this page you will find a range of downloadable worksheets which the children might like to use on their visit.
You will also find some new downloadable activity packs on different themes e.g. shopping, vehicles which have been designed to be downloaded and used by groups on their visit to provide a more focussed study on a particular topic.
Milestones provides pencils and clipboards for visiting school pupils. We have Education Rooms available for the children to have lunch in which contain coat/bag pegs and tea and coffee making facilities for adults for use at lunchtime. We just ask that you wash up the cups and leave the facilities ready for the next group to use them.
All visiting pupils have access to coat/bag pegs, visitor toilets and locker keys for storing class valuables.
Milestones' gift shop has a range of pocket-money items, or you can arrange for a set-price goody bag when you book your visit.

Downloadable activity packs
These downloadable activity packs are designed to help groups focus in more detail on a particular area of interest in Milestones.
We hope that over time we will add to those already on here to provide packs on a variety of subject areas. The packs all come with instructions for how we suggest you use them and are designed to be used flexibly, to support your visit.
You may decide you wish to use them in their entirety or pick and choose elements from them as appropriate to your topic and your children.
We have some of these packs available for you to borrow. If you'd like to use them, please request them in advance of your visit so that we can have them ready for you when you arrive. Just let us know which one you'd like to use and how many you will need.
