Living History: Woody the Time Travelling Shopper

Living History: Woody the Time Travelling Shopper

Key Stage1 & 2 pupils will meet our magical time traveller. They will find out about life in the past and go on a shopping adventure.

Living History: Woody the Time Travelling Shopper

Living History workshops use performance, interactive drama activities and gallery exploration to bring learning to life.

Enjoy this cross-curricular Living History session for Key Stage 1 & 2 using our 1930s Co-op shop.

Help Woody, a time traveller from a distant planet, build a time machine so your class can go on a shopping adventure.  Meet Dotty in the Co-op shop in 1936 and then travel back to the 1840s to meet her grandmother at the first Co-op shop in Rochdale.
