Each of our educational workshops is written in consultation with the National Curriculum and the activities that we use are designed to enable the children to use their own latent knowledge to educate themselves and each other. We do not give the children all of the answers but allow them to use their minds to ask questions and explore outcomes for themselves.

We have found that this practical experience helps children to remember what they have learned and also promotes critical thought about the world around them. Furthermore, it provides the opportunity for children to increase their confidence in using new vocabulary as they are taught new words related to the subject content of the workshop, thus developing their key skills in communication and literacy.

Ultimately, our educational workshops boast a vast range of benefits for both children and teachers alike.

We like teachers to get as involved in the workshop as they feel is appropriate so that they have the opportunity to experience the activities along with the children or, alternatively, they can use the time to observe how the workshop is progressing. For example, they might want to use some of the techniques themselves when they return to the classroom, or find out if there are any children that are particularly benefiting from this type of learning technique. The children are fully supervised and there is usually a combination of group learning followed by individual or small cluster exercises during which workshop leaders are able to monitor individual pupil progress and help any children who may be struggling. It really is wonderful to see children come up with such creative ideas as a result of being taught the National Curriculum in an innovative and exciting way.
