Education Essentials

Imagining History
Imagination is the greatest tool a child possesses. Here at Imagining History we have crafted a series of school workshops that allow children to unlock their imagination and experience history in a brand new way.

History is all around us. Each of our fully interactive half-day sessions uses this concept to immerse the children within the historical period, utilising drama and performance techniques to bring the people, places and events of the past to life for your students.

Our KS2 workshops are led by two practitioners who will weave a tapestry of time for the children to explore and bring your topic to life with the all-important Wow factor.
Based in Lancaster, the Imagining History team of practitioners have over 10 years of experience working within the education sector and delivering outstanding workshops to primary schools all over the country.

Each of our workshops runs for two hours over a morning or afternoon session. We are completely flexible in our approach and we fit our workshops around your scheduling needs.

All of our practitioners are DBS checked and we provide full risk assessments for all our workshops upon request.

Momentum Education Consulting
At Momentum Education Consulting, we work towards empowering individuals to achieve their potential through building knowledge, skills and application. We focus on the importance of wellbeing in improving academic outcomes and providing a holistic environment for students to thrive and flourish, whilst also focussing on building the knowledge, skills and application for educators and parents, acknowledging the impact they have on the students.

We are hearing it more and more; mental health issues are becoming commonplace. We have individuals who can’t cope with situations in and outside of school, individuals who don’t want to take risks or try new things and individuals who don’t have the confidence or self-esteem to be seen or heard.

This is where Momentum Education Consulting (MEC) can help. At MEC our aim is to empower individuals to recognise their potential & develop the skills, belief, effort & confidence to work towards this potential.

We do this by using an evidence-based approach around wellbeing and Positive Psychology to create individualised professional learning workshops that can help your school integrate these concepts in to the staffroom, classroom and wider school community.

We offer a tailored approach to up-skilling your teachers and parents with practical strategies to use in the classroom and at home. We believe to see maximum impact for students the adults involved in their lives and education must also work on and be aware of their own wellbeing and coping mechanism.

We cover topics including but not limited to:
– Growth Mindset
– Character Strengths
– Self-regulation
– Grit
– Positive Self-talk
– Coping strategies

‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ – a one hour presentation of the touring theatre show especially adapted for secondary schools.

Due to a generous educational grant I am delighted to be able to offer to all state funded schools throughout 2018 my one-man play ‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ which has been on national theatre tour for the past four years at an ‘expenses’ only charge of £100. This is a specially adapted one hour presentation without interval suitable for secondary students.

The play takes the audience not just through Tommy’s war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passhendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.
From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.
This is his story.

‘compelling, moving, insightful and believable …. beautifully written and performed’
