Home Ed History
Following the very positive feedback from our November trial sessions, we are delighted to have put together a history programme for the first term of 2019. Our history is entirely experiential and immersive. We have no text books and we don’t make the children learn dates. Instead, we use archaeology, artefacts, imagery and activities to bring history alive and to inspire children to be inquisitive about our past. One week we may be examining a 200,000 year old axe, another leaning about Shakespeare through the medium of an Elizabethan sixpence. We might be recreating palaeolithic rock art (very messy) or mesolithic footprints (also very messy).
Our students tend to be aged between 11 and 16 although our sessions are suitable for younger children as well.
Join us on a Wednesday afternoon in the fabulously historic Wotton House and grounds, home to Gloucestershire International School and a short walk from Gloucester station, for an engaging, fun and inspiring journey into our amazing past.
The cost of each session will be £12.00 and can be booked in blocks of 3 or for the duration of the course. The sessions run from 1.30 to 3.00 on the following dates:
9th January 2019 Technology - from prehistory to the industrial revolution and beyond...
23rd January 2019 The archaeology of art
6th February 2019 Neanderthals re-appraised
27th February 2019 Exploring the world
13th March 2019 Science and the 17th century
3rd April 2019 Prehistory on our doorstep
