SUMMER DAY VISITS

SUMMER DAY VISITS

SUMMER DAY VISITS

A summer day visit will take place between April and October. This visit will focus on the ancient skills and tasks people from the Dark Ages would have undertaken.


What happens on the day?

Your visit duration will depend on your transport but typically 10am to 3pm. 


On arrival your class will be divided into three work parties of around ten children. Each party will rotate around the three activities.  Two of your three activities will be ATC staff led and will usually be more technically demanding such as:

  • blacksmithing, 
  • rope making, 
  • felt making, and many other

The  third activity will be led by your visiting staff after our demonstration to your children. 


Each teaching day finishes with a plenary session sitting around a fire in a building and gives your children a chance to ask questions from the day. Our qualified staff hare experts in their subject and this is a great way to wind down before heading home.

SUMMER DAY VISITS

We can cover specific time periods such as the Stone Age, Iron Age (Celtic), Roman, Saxon, or Viking Periods or alternatively, we can design a day that compares and contrasts two time periods. 

 

Safety is paramount. Every ATC activity is planned, tested, risk assessed and practiced before it is offered to a visiting school. This maintains our excellent safety record and allows us to offer activities, which are unique to the ATC.


The activity you wish to do is discussed at the time of booking or during your pre-planning visit and can be adapted on the day if the weather is bad and according to the year group.


If in doubt just ask our qualified staff.


"The children had an amazing visit to your center. The following day they wrote about their experiences and they all commented on all the new things they had learnt and how much they wanted a return visit". St Catherine's School November 2019.
