Themed around Easter, we’ll be making slime in spring colours, such as pink, blue and yellow! Come along, get creative and get a little slimy!
What was life like aboard a ship for nineteenth-century emigrants? Who were the Irish people who invented the submarine, who founded the Argentinian Navy or who were pirate hunters in New Zealand?
