If I’d had history lessons like this when I was at school I would have enjoyed the subject so much more.
It has been a delight and a pleasure to have you both coming in and working with our pupils. They have loved this project and sharing what they have learnt with parents and peers.I, myself also enjoyed working with you both. So thank you, it has been much appreciated.
PLEASE can you come back tomorrow?
When we take our dog for a walk my son tells me about all the local history he learned on the trip with you.
I enjoyed two things. Everything and everything!
Two weeks after the delivery of Mrs History’s Engaging Family Audience’s training course one of our volunteers received excellent praise. A visitor commented that she was very impressed with how the volunteer had managed to engage with all members of the family and made them all feel special within the space of a few minutes- she promised she would be returning as a result! The volunteer had taken the tips from the training and delivered excellent customer service
Thank you so much for a fantastic trip! We all got so much out of it and it will inform much of our teaching for this half-term. We’re doing some sequencing tomorrow with the pictures we took, moving on to diary entries later in the week…
Once again thank you for an interesting, informative and thoroughly enjoyable walk. I will be recommending your services to future Year 2 classes and, of course, other key stages!
I thought the session was really well executed and I liked the structure, with the talk at the start, the time-line and then the smaller breakout sessions- I thought they worked especially well and the children were attentive all the way through. They loved it!Well done- it’s a great local resource.
- Just a note to say a big thank you for the Mrs History session you held recently. My daughter came home from school and was really positive about it. She really enjoyed being an active participant and seeing the artefacts. She definitely seems to have learned a lot and has shown a real enthusiasm about the topic since.
- My daughter really enjoyed today.
- My daughter loved it!!!!
- My son loved it!
- My son has not stopped going on about how much he enjoyed and learned from you both. There is nothing like passion for education.
- Thumbs up from my son!
- My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about your class and she really enjoyed herself.
- My son said that Mrs History was fab and had real artefacts! He has been chatting away about it all night.
Mrs History delivered fascinating and thoroughly resourced sessions to launch our whole school topic, World War I. In covering both life in the trenches and the Home Front, the collections are wide-ranging and have given a broad over view of the subject. The children were able to handle original documents and objects and delighted in touching badges and munitions that were 100 years old. They loved the opportunity to dress up in a nurse’s uniform and the soldier’s uniform. Mrs History’s wealth of knowledge was evident and their engaging manner held the children’s interest throughout the session. This fantastic day, from which the whole school benefitted, has opened up World War I for the children and stimulated much discussion and debate.

A Parent’s Perspective on a Recent Mrs History Romans Session Mrs History delivering hands-on history in schools
Mrs History gave a talk at my daughter’s school about the Romans. My daughter had shown no interest until then, but they really brought history to life. Mrs History told her lots of information about what the Romans did and how that is still relevant today . The talk was delivered in an interactive way so that my daughter actually started to think about what it would be like to live as a Roman. Fantastic!

Epic World War I
A busy day last Friday introducing World War One objects to years 1-6 in Castle Bromwich. Wonderful questions and answers from the children and some great comments. “This is EPIC” being our favourite!
