Young people in schools in England and Wales are getting an exciting opportunity to have their work made part of the official public record at the National Archives as part of the Census 2021 - It’s Our Story Competition.
From April onwards, The National Archives are inviting children and families across the country to join us for Time Travel TV! Each week, on a Tuesday and Thursday, we will be broadcasting fun-filled sessions and bringing the archives to your armchair! Time travellers will find out all about The National Archives and the wonderful treasures that we hold; from the extraordinary to the down-right bizarre! Each session will have exciting follow-up activities for viewers to complete, including a detective based enquiry exploring other documents in our collection, and a creative themed craft.
