It is important to us that Home Educated children have access to the same excellent and affordable resources as school children. Here at the Ancient Technology Centre we teach prehistory in an authentic setting using experiential archaeology in learning to underpin the outcomes you want for your children. Our sessions are suitable for the age, ability and aptitude of each child.
As a home educating family it is such a fantastic opportunity to visit the ATC to learn history for home educated children. We've attended two events at the centre, The Vikings and the Battle of Hastings. The latter was specifically created for us when we asked if they could cater for that era in history. The centre itself is absolutely amazing, with a longhouse, roundhouse and other living history buildings and equipment. This added to the authenticity of the event and the children really thrived in the environment, sparking imagination and creativity.
We found staff at the centre extremely welcoming and supportive of the home educating community, which created confidence in families. Andy and his team were all so knowledgable and the supporting activities and games really embodied the learning. Andy even arranged a mock battle of Hastings with the children and parents. The children absolutely loved this and I am sure my daughter will never forget the circumstances to the battle, as she really lived it on her hobby horse with foam sword in hand.
We are so looking forward to more events in the future and feel extremely lucky to have this living history experiences in our learning.
Thank you ATC
