Medieval Days

– Keith Sadler, Lead inspector, Ofsted

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!

NEW for 2014 – We are now also making presentations on:
“Life in Britain during World War Two” WW2
“Early Man” incorporating Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages

School Medieval Workshop
Pete the Pedlar leads the way back in time…

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 speciality is the Middle Ages, but we can also present school history workshops featuring Celtic, Roman, Saxon, Viking, Norman, Tudor and Stuart periods. 

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 Britan 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.
