See what some of our past participants have to say about our educational history workshops.

Dear Chris,

Thank you so so much for our Roman day. The children went home buzzing and lots of parents have mentioned how much they all talked at home about what they had learned. One has even sent me a photo of Celtic stew tonight that they’ve made! The staff were so impressed with the delivery that they saw. We are really looking forward to our Stone Age day in December with you and would like to book two more workshops next year for years 2&6.  

Many thanks again! [M]

Hi Chris

We all had a lovely time and the children are buzzing with all the facts they learnt!  We are writing instructions today for defusing a bomb.  Thank you for a lovely day.

World War Two Workshop

Hi  - We had such a fantastic day! The children learnt lots and were really enthused by the activities and the opportunity to get the feel of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian! It consolidated our existing learning in the subject and extended it into new areas. Several children have since brought in further information that they have been inspired to find out at home.

Ancient Egypt Workshop

Hi Chris, I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for visiting us at [...] today. Our children had the most incredible morning with you (as did us staff!) and were absolutely gripped from the moment they met you. They adored building London & acting out the events that followed, completely enthralled by your costumes & wealth of knowledge. The carousel of activities were excellent and it was truly wonderful to see the children handling artefacts and making links between their learning. Your hard work & dedication to providing high quality, historical experiences is crystal clear to see and I have absolutely no doubt that the day will remain with the children for many years to come. We feel so lucky to have been visited by you & I promised the children that as per their wishes, I’d invite Samuel Pepys back to visit! Once again, thank you ever so much for taking the time to visit us today- we absolutely loved it.

Great Fire of London Workshop

My favourite part of the WW2 day was the bomber mission and the quiz because it was really interesting to find out what it was like to be in a plane carrying out a succesful bombing mission and learning all about the people who done it. 

Maybe if you made the plane 3D so you could climb inside and look out of the windows.

World War Two Workshop

A great day had by all. Children were very engaged and enthusiastic. All children were able to take part. The resources were amazing- they really helped the children to understand our topic on Vikings which brought it to life.

Anglo Saxons... and Vikings too!

Anglo Saxons Workshop

Lots of interactions. Lovely to have visual resources for children to see and help build. Pitched appropriately to enable children to be fully engaged at all times.

If you wish to have motivated and engaged children from a hands on workshop I could not recommend Chris highly enough. The resources really brought the afternoon to life.

Stone Age Day

Stone Age Workshop

Fantastic day, keeping children engaged throughout by using practical and hands on activities. 

Class teacher, Essex.

Roman Britain

Ancient Rome Workshop

The questioning helped the higher ability to explore potential problems, while extending the lowers too. A wonderful mixture of practical activities with problem solving, which really helped the children understand life in the Stone Age.

Stone Age history workshop activities

Stone Age WorkshopEdward, Bacton

I liked the board game because we had to use our heads to survive in the forest and collect the firewood. I enjoyed getting jobs for the boat because everyone was included and we all enjoyed our part.

Anglo Saxons WorkshopGabi, Stowmarket

I really enjoyed everything but my favourite parts were making that wall with wood and mud and also the boat and when some people got dressed as Anglo Saxons.

Thank you for coming in today and teaching us about the Angles and Vikings and Saxons. You were really funny as well.

My favourite part was seeing how to build a boat. I enjoyed holding the dangerous bow and arrow.

I enjoyed holding the wooden horse and the Anglo Saxon money. Next time if you do visit I would really, really like you to stay for the afternoon.

Anglo Saxons WorkshopDaisy, Suffolk school

- my favourite part was when we did the food and housework things with you because it was really fun learning about all the foods Anglo Saxons used to have. The wheat part was so fun!

Anglo Saxons Workshop

Hi Chris,

I felt very privileged to be in school that morning and to watch your session.
The children loved it and I was so surprised with how much they remembered afterwards - that's hands on learning for you!

We did discuss what they enjoyed ... during the session and although I haven't got any particular names this is what they came up with:

They enjoyed:

1. Helping with the props / building things
2. Dressing up
3. Pretending they were the people from the stone age / sitting in the shelter, in the house etc
4. Reading the information
5. Building Stonehenge

Dear Lidmann,

Thank you so much for visiting us today - I really felt like I had travelled back in time to the land of the Angles! Your boat building scene was excellent and you are very skilled at your work. The timings of words and actions and storytelling was just right. There was not a murmur in the hall- they were all spellbound, as I was too!

Mrs Moore, Suffolk

Anglo Saxons Workshop

...thank you so much for Tuesday. The learning has been amazing...

...the children were able to remember all of the events during the fire, and it has really stimulated their writing.
