'Very practical, hands on. A fantastic learning experience.'

'The children had a great time. The work they produced was of a very high standard.'

Time Trips delivers workshops on ancient history and science subjects in primary schools in the North West of England. Each lesson has been carefully designed to engage children with educational and exciting hands-on activities, such as making models and artefacts, role play, drama, and games.


The creative activities are of a much higher standard than those provided by other history or science workshops. The price is however much lower than average, because I work alone and design all resources myself. Also, travel expenses are low because I do not travel far from my home in Manchester.

Workshops last a full day and take place mainly in the classroom. I am a former history teacher with an MEd and an MSc in child psychology (here is my CV). The fee is 229 or 239, depending on the cost of resources.

The lessons are fully compatible with the new curriculum, and are always being updated and improved. Follow the links to the left for details, as well as photos of the activities and reviews from teachers and children.
