Hands on Cross Curricular workshops for ALL Key Stages and abilities. Including Art, Drama, DT, Maths, Geography, History, Literacy, and Science. Offering catalyst support for teachers and giving pupils unforgettable experiences. We are in all 3 STEM directories

Egyptian Pyramids:
The Ancient Egyptians are explored through their Pyramid building feats and techniques for cutting and transporting the stone. Pupils build small and giant pyramids and discuss the comparison of mass construction of stone pyramids with framework structures of today.

Greek Temple & Roman Villa:
Pupils see how Classical Architecture has influenced the built environment using a combination of problem solving, and group work to construct a thrilling 2.5m high temple including columns, pediments and roof valleys. The workshop has either a Greek or Roman focus as required.

Saxon Roundhouse:
To fit in with the curriculum on Invaders and Settlers and complimenting our Viking Longship workshop. Pupils build a structure large enough for them to all occupy

Tudor Galleon:
Pupils work individually, in groups and altogether pupils build the huge skeletal structure of a Tudor man-o-war, which can reach over 14 metres long.

Tudor Globe Theatre:
Pupils build structures individually and in groups, culminating with raising the roof of a giant model of London’s Globe Theatre standing 3 metres high. Pupils imagine a Tudor audience being entertained by Shakespearean special effects and considering the Tudor toilet facilities!

Victorian Crystal Palace
Learning about the mass production of the industrial revolution, pupil’s piece together building parts, they have previously made, to form one large single enclosure. Enacting a triumphal procession through the palace pupils imagine the Victorian wonders it would have held.

Viking Longboat
Pupils work individually and in groups as Vikings together to construct a Long Boat up to 12m in length, complete with sail and oars. Large enough for the whole group to sit in, they imagine navigating a passage around the Arctic Circle to North America, as the Vikings did, some 500 years before Columbus.

We tailor our workshops to suit the pupils we are working with, even within the same year group classes can differ, so our animateurs respond in kind to the individuals in front of them.

Our aim is to make the learning experience fun for pupils, the teachers and ourselves.
