“Having taken a degree in Primary Education, I wanted to share my love of history, particularly the Tudor period, with the children I taught. I started running history workshops on a variety of topics, which proved very popular. For the past 5 years, I have been involved in historical re-enactment and have taught about Tudors, Georgians and Victorians at various events around the country, including events at both English Heritage and National Trust sites. My other great passion is making replica Historical clothing, and I have made a large number of costumes over the years, for both adults and children, which I hire out and take to historical events for children to try on. More recently I have created Early Days and a selection of costumed, hands–on workshops to take into schools, covering Key Stage 2 History topics, which the children seem to love, and hopefully will encourage a long lasting interest in the subject.”
The Tudor House is a superb resource and we are able to offer schools a chance to
experience historical workshops in this most uniques of settings.
The Mystery of the Missing Chalice
The War of the Roses
Carousel of Activities and Artefact Handling
The Mystery of the Missing Necklace
The Mystery of the Suspicious Stranger
Plague and Fire in London
Each workshop will be partly classroom based and partly run from the Tudor House to give the pupils a hands-on experience.
Each workshop is one and a half hours long and they are aimed at pupils from Years 3 – 6 with a maximum of 30 pupils per workshop. Costumes and props will be provided to help bring the historical experience alive for the children.
The workshops will be run by Taryn Earley and more information can be found on her website (www.earleydays.co.uk).
