Battle of Hastings

England, Scotland, Wales

The Battle of Hastings ended up lasting all day (terribly exhasting we’re sure you’ll agree) but eventually William of Normandy hit upon a genuis idea to have archers shoot high so that their arrows fell on those behind the shield wall. And then ... well ... you’ll just have to wait and see won’t you?

Your class will…

  • Explore a significant turning point in British history
  • Explore the timeline of the battle and the people involved
  • Have a great day!

Option 1 : Creative Play workshops are short and sweet, designed to be a burst of creativity to keep children engaged. As the sessions are usually only an hour long, we can work with four classes across the school day.

Option 2 : One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
