We would really like to involve more colleagues in planning and development; especially those too far away to attend our free Saturday workshops. We here invite you to help us tweak our very new and some of our very old activities. The former need a little more attention and the latter a spot of dusting. Please feed back your comments. Please send us your ideas for developing new activities. Are there topics that you would like to see us address?

Hwaet! We have tweaked our medieval "Then and Now" activity to suit Y3's study of Anglo Saxons. What should we add?

We have come up with an activity that looks at hurricanes, tax havens and aid. Can you help us formulate the questions?
