Recent Activities

In autumn, teams of volunteers went out to John Clifford School, Burford Primary and Nursery School, Edna G Olds Academy and Robin Hood Primary School for four weekly sessions. The sessions were eagerly anticipated, and the teams were well used. In the spring, we welcomed groups from Carrington, Sneinton, Worksop and Blue Bell Hill Primary Schools to the university. Several groups stayed on to look around the unversity and had sessions with the university museum. Much fun was had by all!

School experiences

“The volunteers were very professional and well-prepared, as well as passionate. They pitched their sessions just at the right level for the age group, and we appreciated it very much that they communicated with us in advance to tie in their activities with what we were doing. The output from our pupils has been great.”

“Working with the children is so much fun, and they’re so interested in what we have to show them. It’s just a really good experience, and helps me understand what I’m studying Vikings for.”
