Our dedicated programme of work with school children launched in 2015. It focuses on local schools in Windsor, Slough and the surrounding areas.
It aims to promote greater social and civic awareness and to help nuture the change-makers of the future.
We currently offer a series of free, interactive workshops for school children and young people in Key Stages 1-5, delivered here at Cumberland Lodge or in school. They are designed to take about an hour.
We also work closely with local branches of the National Citizen Service (NCS) scheme, as part of our education and community outreach work.
Key Stages 1-3
Developed in collaboration with the University of the West of England, our BFG-themed workshop draws on our own connections to The BFG story, to help children think more critically about stories, identity and ideology.
We use children’s literature in a fun and engaging way to help children explore their own values and identities, and to think about how stories shape us and influence social and cultural structures around us.
The workshop has been devleoped in collaboration with Dr Ann Alston, a specialist in children’s literature and a Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of England.
