Hello teachers! More about our History workshops

April 4th, 2012 · No Comments · For teachers

If you are teaching either the Victorians or the Second World War this term I just wanted to let you know about our two primary history workshops in more detail.

Both workshops are built from the ground up with one aim in mind, and that is to make the pupils’ learning of the topics extremely fun and productive, with lots of relevant activities for them to try their hand at, including the all essential timeline for each topic.

Our Blitz school WW2 workshop for example involves activities based around gas attacks, the blackout, morse code, air raid shelters, dealing with incendiary bombs + much, much more about WW2 besides.

Our Victorian Inventions workshop follows a similar structure, with activities based on photography, steam power, and the invention of the electric telegraph, all rounded off with an end-of-day Victorian Inventions “race to the Great Exhibition” team quiz.

But that is not all, for in both workshops pupils are able to access over 40 different artefacts from each period, which they not only investigate but they also use in the activities. For example, we believe that we offer the ONLY opportunity in the world for pupils of their age to actually take a digital picture through an actual 1880 lens!
Added to this, we also offer a wide range of FREE Victorian teaching resources and WW2 resources and lesson plans that you are free to use whether or not you decide to book a visit from us. All in all, we hope you’ll agree that we have done our utmost to make the teaching of the topics as easy and as productive as possible for you in terms of pupil learning.
