Primary School Workshops
 
World War 1 & 2 Primary School Workshops

   As re-enactors, we keep history, music and dancing alive and offer Workshops for Key Stage 2 children,

In these workshops we tell the story of how music, singing and dancing influenced morale during the war years.

    Our musician Mick (with ukulele) can either teach or lead simple sing-along session, and we will both demonstrate and teach an easy dance that the children will be able to perform.

   During the workshop we will include question and answer session and allow the children to see a range of photographs, posters and memorabilia.

  • Workshops last for around 60 minutes and can be split Into two shorter ones for 2 groups.

  • We would reccomend no more than 35 children per dance teaching session, if space is restricted.

  • Recommendations can be provided.

  • We only do these workshops around York and Malton, or within a 30 minute or so drive time.

  • Please get in touch with us via the CONTACTS PAGE on this website or ring Tina on 01904 765780 for a chat.

TEACHER REVIEW - World War 2 - Song & Dance WORKSHOP -

Key Stage 2 - at a York Primary School

"Thank you so much, we were so impressed - and you had clearly all put lots of thought and effort into the session.  I also really enjoyed the way you spoke so naturally, with real warmth as well as the fab dancing/singing/ costumes. It made the whole thing come to life. If you ever need a recommendation I would be happy to give one."
