Schools and Young Learners
As an ex teacher and Theatre in Education Writer and Director, we have an in-depth understanding of ‘learning through doing’ and positive engagement.
Our aim is to inspire young learners with fun and interactive activities that explore the exciting history of their local area. We are passionate about learning, engagement and the significance of the areas the children may already know but not be captivated by. We hope this knowledge will be an important part of generational growth for their future and for the local area.
Tour lasts approximately 60 minutes but can be tailored to individual needs. Please get in touch to discuss details and availability.
The whole group will be captivated as the rich history of old leigh is brought to life with this engaging and interactive walking tour.
Intrepid tales of pirates & storms will capture everyone’s imagination along with discovering the importance of this once small fishing village to London and the whole of the South East.
Listed in the Doomsday book of 1086, this historic town has so much to explore and groups of all ages will enjoy being guided through the cobbled streets whilst using their clue sheets to help them find interesting facts which will add to the fascinating history being told.
Let us come to you for a fantastic interactive workshop based on our local history.
Your groups will learn fascinating facts about the local area and hear historical tales whilst enjoying the chance to be creative through a mixture of drama & storytelling. They will step into the shoes of the Saxon settlers who first discovered Leigh on Sea, become the vast array of characters who made the area what it is today, learn about King John and Edward III’s significance to the area and enjoy discovering the background of some of their favourite local places.
All workshops include a learning pack to continue with the themes.
Workshops are aimed at any groups who wish to enjoy an engaging & interactive form of learning in their school, meeting hall or own venue. They can be tailored to any group size.
