Teacher Reviews

What teachers are saying about our online and onsite workshops….

A high quality and value for money experience for schools.

Battle of Britain (Online), Year 6 Teacher, Roe Green Junior School

This was one of the best school trips that my colleagues and I have been on. The workshops were excellent - the children were engaged from start to finish. The content enriched their understanding of WW2 and we loved how hands on the sessions were. We felt that the day was planned so smoothly with the designated bag bins and lunch times. The communication in the lead up to the trip was fantastic. We had an absolute blast and will absolutely be coming again. 

Air Raid (Onsite), Year 5 Teacher, Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School

The children loved the trip. It was so exciting to see real planes and there were lots of interactive items as well.

Self-guided Visit (Onsite), Year 6 Teacher, Longshaw Primary School

I feel that this will really help them to understand what it was like to experience an air raid. We are writing stories about air raids this week and I feel that this will have helped them with their historical understanding and English writing.

Air Raid (Online), Year 6 Teacher, Ivybridge Primary School

This was a really thoughtful workshop that introduced to the children key questions about bravery and about groups of people they wouldn’t have investigated before.

Battle of Britain (Online), Year 5 Teacher, John Hampden Primary School

It was very enjoyable and all the children were kept entertained by all of the activities (provided by your website). Also the personal greeting and welcome by Martin was lovely.

Self-guided Visit (Onsite), Year 4 Teacher

It definitely helped them to imagine what school life and classrooms were like during the 1940s. The experience also developed their enthusiasm for our WW2 topic.

Wartime Classroom (Onsite), Year 6 Teacher, St Theresa's RC Primary School

Thanks so much – very stimulating for the class and it generated a lot of class discussion. We particularly liked the ‘guess the object’ section.

Air Raid (Online), Year 5 Teacher, Nancy Reuben Primary School

It was absolutely wonderful. Informative, engaging and extremely well put together. We cannot fault any aspect of the workshop.

Pilots of the Caribbean (Online), Year 6 Teacher

The scope and size of the museum and the planes hooked the kids immediately. The workshop was well organised and the staff all very efficient and friendly.

Wartime Classroom (Onsite), Year 4 Teacher

Students, especially today, need to apply the knowledge they acquire. Interaction with the table enabled students to interpret information supplied and make inferences and presentations to other students, no matter what they actually believed beforehand. Watching the application of skills and stepping-up into roles they often do not assume in class was tremendous.
