INSET Days

  • If you’re looking for something new and different for an INSET day, why not invite us in for a history focused session based around the KS2 Anglo Saxons and Vikings requirement?

    We can offer anything from demonstration activities to curriculum advice to teambuilding exercises on a historical theme.  We can turn your classroom into a longhouse! We can throw your teachers in the deep end and have them remember what it’s like to learn new skills from scratch.  

    Teachers really saw the benefits of having external experts in the classroom as well as being able to see the level of support a theme day gives teachers in developing lesson plans.
