Bring your history topics to life with a School Visit

2artefactsmagnifyclosewhitebkgdiron age warrior wht cropGripping History provides memorable and informative historical school visits for children in EYFS through to Key Stage 3 in East Anglia and the East Midlands. If you are teaching a Unit of Work covering history from prehistory to the 14th century, Gripping History will bring your topic to life.

At Gripping History our preference is to discuss with you the needs of your children, your key learning objectives and shape these into a tailored programme for your school, although we have many suggestions to offer about suitable activities.

All learning activities are supported by a range of artefacts for handling and exploration, and led by Cathy Murphy, an engaging teacher and experienced re-enactor.
