As a member of prominent local living history society, Anmod Dracan, I have decades of experience presenting history to local schools, museums and libraries.
I can offer you five exciting workshops to enhance the key stage 2 curriculum.
Focusing on everyday life and it’s place in the wider historical
perspective brings a unique insight into the lives of our ancestors, giving pupils a more “hands on” relationship with history. Myths and legends, combined with historical anecdotes add greater depth.
Each performance lasts approximately two hours, but is flexible enough to fit into a normal school timetable. Costumes, role-play, discussion, artefact handling and storytelling, as well as humour, bring the experience alive.
Thousands of children and teachers across the North-East have enjoyed this experience for many years, so don’t be left out!
Questions are encouraged, and the experience can easily be extended into the classroom.
