School Visits

Are you teaching an historical period and need a hook into the subject or something special for your ‘dazzling debut’ or ‘fab finale’?

Want to save on the time and expense of arranging an external visit by bringing history into your school?

We can bring the topic to life and make a lasting impression with a costumed historical character in your classroom.

A typical session can last up to an hour for one or more combined classes.

Our costumed character(s) will introduce themselves and describe their daily life and the world around them, the clothing / armour they are wearing and any accessories and weapons that they are carrying.

There will then be time for ‘hot seat’ questions and answers where your students can pose questions to our performer(s) who will stay ‘in character’ throughout and further develop your student’s understanding of the period.

We finish with opportunities for photographs and supervised handling of weapons and props (if applicable).

Our focus is making the experience both educational and fun and your students will be talking about our visit for months to come!

Additional materials:

We will provide you with:

  • An introductory sheet (PDF for you to copy) in advance of the session which has a set of prompts and suggested questions for the students to pose to your visitor.
  • A short PowerPoint slide deck of key facts that will be used during the character’s visit.
  • A short Multi Choice quiz paper (PDF for you to copy) so your students can test themselves on the new facts they have heard and reinforce the learning.

We can discuss with you in advance any specific learning outcomes you need to include.
