Stone Age to Iron Age immersive workshop
Your children will chart the changes between Stone Age and Iron Age by visiting at least two contrasting camps set up in your grounds (or hall) and meeting a Stone Age and Iron Age character. They will learn how to make fire and survive as a hunter-gatherer and all the other jobs that people took on once they became farmers. They will take part in a performance of what we think an ancient religious ceremony might have been like.
Roman immersive workshop
A Roman ‘villa’ will appear in your grounds or hall and one or more Roman characters will greet your children and give them experience of what it was like to live in Roman Britain, whether that was as a soldier, a slave, a rich villa owner or a child.
Anglo-Saxon and Viking immersive workshop
One or more Anglo-Saxons and/or Vikings will teach your children how to fight, how to look good, play some games and how to do all the domestic activities that needed doing.
Cost of immersive workshops: 1 class £400; 2 classes £550;
3 classes £700; 4 classes £850.
Object handling class visits
This is a cheaper option to the immersive activity based workshops above and instead entails a leader visiting up to four classes in a day one by one with a group of real and replica objects for a 1-1.5 hour handling and questions session, followed by a simple making activity. They can be themed to any of the same topics as the immersive workshops: Stone Age to Iron Age; Roman; Anglo-Saxon/Viking.
Cost: £250 for up to two classes; £350 for up to four classes.
Ask us about running teacher training days to become familiar with the use of objects in classroom teaching and to learn hands on activities to do with children to bring history to life.
