...delivering cultural awareness, diversity and equality workshops in schools

Our Workshops

In our workshops, we aim to:

  • address ignorance, stereotypes and prejudice
  • encourage value and appreciation of all people
  • develop cultural and emotional intelligence
  • integrate a cross-curricular approach
  • connect with all groups from EYFS to KS4

Workshops are presented through a range of activities to facilitate optimum learning and may include: simple role play, story, discussion, quizzes, singing, hands-on with artefacts, personal experiences, creative expression, games, audiovisuals, follow-on interest activities and research.

 

Literacy & Numeracy focus

 

Our 'add + write in black x white' Workshops are aimed at using the topical issues of cultural diversity as an effective avenue and vehicle for helping to improve literacy and numeracy. We give a special focus to the literacy and numeracy aspects of our workshops and provide follow-on activities to help teachers develop the ideas further in class after the sessions. This approach allows schools to do our workshops in the context of current literacy and numeracy strategies. Matters relating to PSHE, RE and History are also significant parts of the content.

 

Workshops can be done individually or as a series at a reduced price with groups of schools in clusters. Tailored workshops are also available. Please view our Primary and Secondary workshop pages for more details.

Testimonials

These are just a few of the comments from the Travelling the World workshop:

 

"Everyone really enjoyed the workshops - the children were still talking about it today and several parents said their children had been talking about them at home last night, which is really positive." (Head Teacher).

 

"Superb range of resources and artefacts to bring workshop 'to life'. A fabulous session THANK YOU!" (Nursery Teacher).

 

"Getting children to move around was excellent - the children will remember this journey. Don't change anything- presentation of workshop

was very interesting and informative . Well done!" (School Governor).

 

"The workshop was very well organized and thought out. The artefacts added greatly to the pupils understanding of different cultures and by moving around various groups they gained a good understanding of how Britain is a multicultural society. Thank you very much" (Class Teacher).

 

"Setting the quite difficult concept of diversity within a story makes the idea much easier for children to access. The differentiation across the age groups is excellent!

(Deputy Head Teacher).

 

"An excellent workshop, the children loved it and really enjoyed it all. It was the perfect length for the age group. The children talked about the workshop and remembered all about the different countries. Fantastic workshop - well delivered!"

(Reception & Year1 Teacher).

 

"Props were really nice, stimulating, good for children to visualise."
