Widget Workshops - for Primary Schools
A much cheaper alternative to school trips, with the benefits of no time travelling (except to the era we take you), less staffing costs and far less time organising. Let us take the strain and transport you to another world.
Our workshops offer a hands-on, creative and innovative approach to learning. Whatever the subject matter, our emphasis is on fun. But what do we mean when we say this? Glad you asked...
We have over 20 years experience in education (teaching across both key stages) and child care. We continue to keep up-to-date with current education and curriculum issues.
We use a variety of innovative and interesting resources -ask about our Virtual and Augmented Reality activities.
We like to ensure a range of curriculum subjects are included in a visit, we cover STEM, Art, D&T, English, Maths, Scientific Enquiry and more.
Our day is modular, with anything up to five activities run during a visit. Each activity is approximately 45 minutes and has a hands-on element to keep the children engaged – we try to avoid too much standing at the front and talking.
We also understand how busy you are as teachers and like to help make life as easy as possible.
We ensure that children will have completed activities that will contribute to school displays, assemblies and can be evidenced in books, if required.
We can offer activities which can easily be continued in the classroom after our visit, for example on going scientific experiments or literacy lesson starters.
We also have an accompanying range of worksheet and PowerPoint resources which can be used in lessons after our visit, which tie in with your chosen topic but cover a range of subjects.
We have an optional mobile gift shop which can offer schools commission of up to 30% on any sales to pupils during our visit. A great way to raise extra funds for the school.
We can offer your staff cheap hire of themed costumes, no one likes a mad dive into their wardrobe the night before!
Most of all, we are very flexible and make any workshop work for you!
