Our key stage 1 workshops encourage children to explore history through role playing, dressing up, object handling and craft activities. Our KS1 workshops are an excellent way of supporting the history curriculum whether they are investigating famous people, delving into times past or just getting to grips with the idea of history. Our workshops includes lots of dressing up, object handling, compare and contrast and craft activities as well as plenty of opportunity to practice reading, writing and thinking skills.

We have also created a number of bespoke workshops on themes as diverse as Teddy Bears, Machines and Creating A Dinosaur Museum. Every December we put on a small Christmas exhibition with linked school workshops and the opportunity to meet our traditional Victorian Father Christmas and receive a gift.

Key Stage 1 Workshops: The following workshops are examples of the sort of workshops we have offered in the past. If you would like something to suit your topic email the Learning and Outreach Officer at
