Curriculum Enrichment Days

Bring history and literacy to life for your students

Need help with a topic?

We can bring history and literacy to life for your students with themed enrichment days, where we meet our ancestors (or literary characters) close up, and through a range of interactive and action-oriented workshops. We cover most periods, from our Stone Age ancestors through to the present day. Topics we have previously covered include: Celts and Romans, King Arthur, Beowulf, The Vikings and 1066: The Year of Battles.

Please get in touch with us to discuss your topic and find out how we can design an immersive and interactive learning experience which meets your learning objectives.
