A SLICE OF ROMAN BRITAIN IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR SCHOOL
"Thank you so much for a wonderful, creative workshop! It was engaging, relevant and hands-on. The children relished the opportunity to handle the artefacts and loved dressing up!"
Faye, y6 teacher, Bolton
"What a great day! The pupils loved the 'hands-on' opportunities you provided and your care and attention to detail, such as getting to know pupils' names, for example. Your delivery and organisation were excellent, as you could see from the pupils' responses. Many thanks from us all, for a memorable living history day.
From the Staff and Pupils at Giggleswick Primary School, North Yorkshire.
"An excellent, exciting workshop that fitted the objectives of the new 2014 curriculum topic of ‘Roman Britain’ perfectly. The fun timeline at the start set the context really well and the pupils loved looking at an auxiliary soldier’s kit; marching with proper Roman commands (including making the ‘testudo’, the shield tortoise!) and their favourite part which was throwing the Pilum spears. All in all a very good workshop that we would have no hesitation in booking again next year!"

"Had a fantastic WW2 day today! This is the second year we've had 'Blitz School' in with our Year 3s and I hugely recommend. It is a superb learning experience, great fun and excellent value for money. Already booked the WW1 experience in a couple of weeks and looking forward to more visits in the near future. Thanks for a fabulous day, we all (teachers and children) had a great time. ""
Angela Enwright, y3 teacher, Turton
" "Many, many thanks for a fantastic day on Wednesday. The key stage 1 and reception children thoroughly enjoyed the history workshops. You brought a fairly tricky concept for young children to life in a way that was meaningful to them. They left school buzzing and have been eager to find out more! Thank you again.""
