We bring the stories of Bedford to life offering an engaging and interactive learning experience.
Each workshop can last from 1 – 1 1/2 hours and can accommodate up to 30 children.
Our aim is to focus in on and tailor a workshop to your choice of time period, exploring it in an engaging and collaborative way.
Workshops are designed to focus in on the time period being studied, be it the Vikings or the Victorians, the Saxons or the Stuarts with the core theme highlighting what was happening in Bedford at that point in time.
Each workshop is fully interactive and children will engage in a mixture of components including some or all of the elements of writing, exploring topics through discussion, problem-solving, creating / making and drawing.
The workshop will complement not only a local history project, but will benefit pupils who are studying the history of Britain on a wider scale.
Workshops will help pupils gain an understanding of Bedford and its people at a defined point in time. This will help pupils to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of both British and local history.
The aim is to help pupils gain the tools they need to question and understand why past events are so important and shape the society we live in today.
“Thank you, we found out some things we never knew before.”
“I enjoyed the workshop because it was fun!”
“The best bit was making the coins.”
“Really good and I learned a lot.”
We offer different packages and these can start from as little as £40 with any materials included. Workshops are approximately 60 minutes long, but can be longer and will incorporate different elements. The nature of these elements will depend on the age of the group.
