Make history come to life with our ‘Build a Tudor House’, ‘Build a Viking Longship’, ‘Build Roman Siege Weapons’, ‘Build an Egyptian Pyramid’ and ‘Build a Spitfire’ days. The days are specifically designed for the Key Stage 2 History curriculum.
However, the Roman Day is also excellent as a KS3 practical Science Day with problem solving.
“It’s too good an experience to miss out on. We’ve had many people in to work with the children but this has taken it to a new level.”
Laim Doran, Headteacher Waltham Lees Primary School, Grimsby.
“About the best workshop day I have ever experienced.”
Assistant Head, Michaelchurch Ecsley Primary, Herefordshire
“I have never seen anything quite so superb in our school before.”

Your children will have the hands-on experience of building a piece of ‘living history’. They will use all the learning styles to solve problems as they work in teams, enjoy themselves AND learn history. The children will steep themselves in history for the day as they assemble scaled artifacts from different historical periods.
As well as constructing the large-scale artifacts, the children will enjoy a range of activities specifically related to the main project, giving them an insight into the processes involved in building a Tudor house, a Viking Longship, an Egyptian Pyramid or Roman siege weapons (which are very similar to Greek ones!). The House is large enough to sit 30 children in. The Longship is 6m long and the Onagars fire [soft] ‘rocks’ up to 20m. The Egyptian Pyramid is 3m square on the base and children can go in -but please don’t tell them! We also help chlid re not build spitfires (either 3m long or about 1m) as well as Lancaster Bombers, Blimps, V1and V2′s.
