2023 Britishness

Defining the foundational elements of British culture, exploring how Britain has changed over the years through its fantastic and diverse population, and much more.

Through a range of dance, props, and presentations, we take students back into history where we explore the events that defined Britain from the perspective of the people who lived it.

We also explore how history is created by present events, such as King Charles becoming the new monarch of Great Britain, to teach children about how they are living in moments that will remembered in British history.

Our 2023 Primary School Workshop

For this year we have created a new and engaging set of age-adapted workshops that perfectly suit the school curriculum to introduce your pupils to the exciting world of history

Britishness

Designed to complement and enhance the school’s existing curriculum, pupils will experience a
comprehensive, interactive day of fun-based learning of British history and traditions. They’ll get to do
activities like the Lambeth Walk dance and learn about how it came to be part of the country’s history and
why it’s still remembered. They will develop a deep understanding of quintessentially British values,
where they came from, and what they represent today.
Through activities including songs, dances, and games, the children will come away with the heartfelt
knowledge and appreciation of British culture and its place in history.

Workshop Highlights:

  • Lambeth Walk Dance
  • Grenadier Guard Game
  • Parade March
  • “12 Days of Britain” sing-along

Skills Acquired:

  • Assessing how much sugar,
    saturated fats, and salt is in
    their preferred foods
  • Comparing different
    products nutritional content
    so they have the power to
    make informed choices
  • Using “swap suggestions” to
    identify healthy alternatives
