Think You've Got What It Takes To Work For The Best Workshop Provider In The Country? Then Get In Touch Today
Architecture Workshops are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. Designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design. The workshops help resource the school curriculum by providing pupils with insight into why and how things are the way they are.
In the workshop, the quest for understanding the world around us is a shared experience between workshop presenter 'animateur' and the pupils. Visualising, designing, creating, calculating and analysing are presented through practical activities. Pupils enjoy and learn about the real world through 'learning by doing', self teaching and communicating to others.
Workshops need to take place in the school dining hall, gym or sports hall. All the structure are dismantled as part of the workshop experience, so we are able to be out of dining halls in time for the catering staff to put out tables, which if necessary we will assist with.
Photographs are permitted of the workshops, so please ensure batteries in your cameras are fully charged. Video recording of the workshop process is strickly prohibited, as the processes of the workshops are covered by our copyright, but you may video your pupils during the activity.
If there is a structure, an iconic piece of architecture, or something relating to a school project you would like us to develop a workshop around please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Focused practical tasks taking history as a starting point and using, DT, maths literacy, science and drama to differing degrees pupils create large scale reconstructions of famous architectural landmarks that bring curriculum subjects to life.
