For more than 20 years, Off the Page has used a blend of practical handcrafts, drama and role-play to inspire children about history. Our primary school workshops have been developed to complement the National Curriculum, and although they vary in structure and subject matter, all of them offer important key elements:

  • A full day of immersion in the subject, led by a qualified teacher
  • Making sessions that allow children to try their hands at historical crafts
  • Strong emphasis on learning outcomes

Children will be encouraged to role-play and pretend throughout the day. Our teacher will bring all the materials necessary to transform your school hall into a historical setting. Any special needs for the day – such as the number of adults needed to help supervise the day, or, in some cases, small amounts of food needed for the afternoon – will be spelled out in your booking materials.

Most of our Key Stage 1 workshops can accommodate up to 60 children, while most of our Key Stage 2 workshops can accommodate up to 90.
