History

From ancient history to modern times

Bringing history to life

From ancient history through to the present day our history workshops give your class the opportunity to explore and learn about life in the past. Whether they are learning about life in their Grandparents’ time, uncovering Roman life or examining how the industrial revolution made Britain the “Workshop of the World” our activities enable your students to immerse themselves in the topic. If you are studying important individuals in our island story – people such as Alfred the Great, Queens Elizabeth I or Winston Churchill – we can support your learning with tailored activities and we are have put together bespoke sessions on Ancient Greece, Making a Museum and Toys and Games through history.
