Our medieval life workshop for KS3 students (also run for yrs 5 & 6 sometimes) is a very hands on & interactive workshop. The whole workshop has a story theme running through it which helps to focus the children's attention as they score points for their medieval households. It covers clothing, food, religion, the guilds, medicine, the black death, surgery and amour & weapons. We have full clothing for about 18 students and everyone gets to wear some sort of costume. They can try on armour, make a medicine, make their masterpiece to join a guild, dress as a lord or lady or meet the blood sucking leeches and much more!

Here's what Parkfield Middle School had to say about us:

"From the detailed information during the booking process to the authentic costumes, props, armour and story; the session was extremely enjoyable as well as very educational. You have a perfect recipe to engage and teach about medieval life. I highly recommend Happening History and would go so far as to say they are the best education group we have used."

Costs are based on your schools location & number of students attending the workshops. Please contact us for a competitively priced experience your students will never forget.

If you would prefer a visit to a castle we can also be found working at Bodiam Castle, nr Battle, East Sussex for 4 weeks in the year. You can combine a visit to this idyllic castle with a 45 minute Happening History workshop for each group and a guided tour of the castle. Suitable for students aged from 5 to 18. If you are interested, please enquire direct to us and we will forward your details on to the education manager at the castle.
