Workshop Packs & Resources

Designed by us to enable you to deliver your own mini workshop.

Due to the increased number of enquiries from schools that we just cannot reach, we have devised a series of mini-workshop packs that are designed to be run by teachers within the classroom.

Each pack contains the resources to replicate a one-hour carousel of activities that we normally run as part of a Living History Workshop. The packs come complete with lesson plan and follow-on activities which are designed to encourage pupil-led learning.

Living History Workshops continues to evolve in response to feedback and demand - if there is anything in particular that you would like to see offered on this page then please contact us.

Each pack is based on historical evidence that the

children will learn as they play. 

We make nearly all of our own props and materials, so many of these items will not be available elsewhere.

The packs are made to order, normally in around 2 weeks. Delivery dates will be confirmed when orders are placed.

The packs contain:

  • Resources for 5 different activities which can be used as a carousel for a class of around 30 children (approximately 1 hour)
  • Carousel lesson plan
  • Easy-to-read instructions so that children can work on their own
  • Teacher Notes to support each activity
  • 5 x detailed follow-on activities (each designed to last at least 30 minutes)
