Learning at Winchester City Mill
Winchester City Mill offers rich possibilities for links to the National Curriculum, especially at Key Stage 1 and 2 and we can tailor your visit to suit you.
An educational visit to Winchester City Mill comprises of 1, 2 or 3 rotated sessions depending on age, size and requirements of the group.
1. A Miller’s guided tour
Lasting 30 minutes, a guided tour with our experienced millers gives pupils the opportunity to learn about the River Itchen and its importance, the story of flour from field to fork and the mill machinery, its history and materials.
Please note: our millers are volunteers and do not work every day. If you would like to take advantage of our guided tours and milling demos, please check their availability when arranging your visit.
2. Self-led interactive activities
Pupils will have the opportunity to explore and learn about various aspects of the Mill through audio, visual and hands-on displays.
3. Staff-led activity
We may need to split the group up further (this will be discussed when you enquire). The third activity might include building and testing waterwheels, learning about the Little Red Hen, ordering the life cycle of a grain or hunting materials.
