Frequently asked questions

Click the questions below to reveal the answers.

How long do the workshops run for?

Each workshop runs for approximately 50 minutes. However, we like to schedule a full hour per session to allow time for the class to settle in.

Can we book just the one workshop?

You can, but our minimum cost is for a half day. So for the same cost, your school can enjoy three workshops instead of one.

How much are the workshops?

Please see here for the costs. You can book a morning of up to 3 workshops or a full day of up to 5 workshops.

How many pupils can we have in a workshop?

Each workshop caters for up to 30 pupils.

Do I have to have the same topic throughout the day?

Not at all! In fact, we structure our workshops so that they offer a great deal of flexibility to teachers. All of our topics are available throughout the year so we could deliver different workshops to each year group - all on one day.

What kind of space do you need?

A hall or studio is ideal as there is a lot of energy in our workshops: the whole class will be encouraged to move around. We can run a session in a classroom as long as it is clear space, has plenty of room for movement of the whole class and is clear of hazards.

What is your availability?

We have a large team of fantastic workshop leaders who work for us across London and the South of England. We can normally accommodate your preferred dates if we are given a few week's notice. However, even if it’s the next day, please do get in contact as we will try our best to get someone to you. If you are located in a rural location or in the South-West, we can still visit, but may require a little more notice.

Hannah was really engaging. The children loved the session and came out buzzing. She was great with the range of behaviours that we have in year 2. I would recommend her to other schools.

– Ms. D Terry

The children enjoyed all of the activities, particularly using their imaginations to act out the story of The Snail and the Whale. They loved learning about opposites and teamwork, and used their listening skills to recreate freeze frames. 

– Miss J Smith

Bella was amazing. She had brilliant control of the children and included everyone. The content of the workshop was great including the song and rap (which I cant get out my head now!) Thanks again!

– Lizzie Davey

I asked the teachers whose children were involved in the workshops and they said that Amy was engaging and energetic. They liked it that the children were actively involved and that she gave the children confidence to assert themselves when perhaps someone was doing something to them that they didn't like.

– Mrs. K Heather

Bella was so enthusiastic and the children were engaged the whole time! They thoroughly enjoyed The Great Fire of London workshop and learnt so much! Thank you Bella!

– Ms. L Champion

Great again. A lovely enhancement to our book week bringing fairy tale characters alive.

– Mandy grayson - Sarisbury infants

The session was pitched at the perfect level and all the children were engaged through out. All members of staff were impressed with what the children have remembered from the workshop.

– Ms. H Crawford

Brooklyn was an excellent workshop leader. The children returned to the classroom absolutely enthused by their session

on the Great Fire of London/jungle. The activities, pace and teaching was perfectly matched for YR, 1 and 2.

– Mrs L Croker

Hannah was absolutely fantastic. She was well organised and full of enthusiasm. The session was split into different sections to keep the children engagement and it worked well for children of all abilities.

Thank you

– Miss S Baldock

Having spoke to the 5 teachers (of each of the classes that were involved) the feedback was that they enjoyed the workshops, thought they were educational and fun and they definitely engaged the children. We look forward to having you again.
