Each history workshop is designed to give children context and an overview of the topic covered. We begin every visit with an interactive timeline activity and a short introduction to the era.
We then split into smaller groups to experience a range of hands-on discovery activities, each lasting around 45 minutes to keep children engaged and learning. Our exciting and innovative VR and AR (virtual and augmented reality) sessions are always very popular. Using the latest technology, children explore the world of Ancient Egypt. Working with a partner, children will complete a quest activity to find out some key facts about life in Ancient Egypt all the while being deeply immersed in a virtual world.
Other activities can include:
Sand dough or clay modelling, creating amulets, scarab beetle symbols or hieroglyphic tablets.
Ancient engineering: Large scale building, learning the skills of the ancient pyramid builders and architects (including pyramid maths!).
Children will be able to wear authentic costumes whilst taking part in a mummification ritual. Children will be learning about parts of the body as part of this fun activity.
Egyptian Maths activity
An archaeological dig, unearthing authentic artefacts as well as realistic replicas. Taking part in a paper based scientific enquiry, investigating the origins and uses of the artefacts.
Death masks, headdress or neck adornment creations.
