Unsolicited testimonial from Head of History, Chiswick School
We will visit all UK schools to present a history workshop with “hands on” activities!
Are you looking to introduce that “wow” factor to your history topic?
For every history presentation we will bring a huge collection of stunning historical resources – both genuine and reproduction – along to your school and offer a hands on medieval (or other historical period) workshop experience at an affordable price.
Everything we bring can be handled by the pupils! The workshops are based on pupils touching, examining and doing.
“The day you spent with us was just great, an all-round success story – thank you so much! The school was buzzing with excitement from children and staff, and I also heard about lots of lovely parental feedback! The staff were all very impressed with your friendly (and authoritative) rapport with the children which helped them to really engage with all those fantastic activities. They loved being let loose among some wonderful artefacts and allowed to explore for themselves – a wonderful learning opportunity. As visitors and workshops go, this was definitely one of the best days enjoyed by the most people. Many thanks again!”
Mrs Jill Delacovias, teacher, Cumnor School 2016.
An expert history presenter dressed in period costume will visit your school, organize activities, interact with the students, explain the items, and answer questions.
Our specialty is the Middle Ages, but we can also present school history workshops featuring Celtic, Roman, Saxon, Viking, Norman, Tudor and Stuart periods. The individual history workshops are designed to last anywhere in between 45 minutes to two hours each, either in a full day or half day booking. As many presentations can be made to fit in the time available.
As part of the experience, each pupil can strike – and keep – their own period coin using authentic equipment.
During the school medieval visit we will organise class activities such as wool spinning and quill pen writing to help the children understand what it was like to line in Britain many years ago.
Children can dress up in period clothes, make rubbings from old carvings and even play with medieval toys.
Our aim is to help bring history alive for children and perhaps make them think about the past from a different viewpoint. Due to demand we are now also covering WW2!
The sessions are designed around the National Curriculum and are suitable for Key Stages 1 to 5 inclusive. We will attend primary, junior, secondary and special needs schools. Most areas in the UK are covered.
We carry Public Liability Insurance and are CRB checked.
