Sessions for Schools
These 30-45 minute sessions are offered to schools as part of a 2 hour (half day) or a 5 hour (whole day) booking. (Simpler paper-based activities will be provided for the other half of the class, such as word-searches, quizzes and colouring in pages. See this list of resources.)
For teachers or group leaders, an additional hand-out
pack can be purchased to supplement the session.
Each workshop is £25.
