Our "Incredible Inventions" KS1 and KS2 science assemblies offer a big hit of inspiring STEM-based science in comprehensive whole-cohort hall sessions full of interactivity and handling of the artefacts on show.

For either version, whether it be Key Stage One or Key Stage Two, we bring in all of these inventions on a large display in the hall which pupils interact with and learn about:

Tailored for each age range, both assemblies involve learning all about the inventions and the impact they had on society with a detailed explanation and interactive parts where pupils come up to the front and experience the inventions close to hand.  Experience such as winding a phonograph or gramophone, marching to WW1 music, sending Morse code, pretending to use cameras, guessing our mystery household inventions and many more mean it is an experience that is guaranteed to enhance your pupils' learning.

What is more, you are most welcome to use this as a basis for single-class sessions with matched activities looking in more detail at selected inventions, from either our "Incredible Inventions" Science workshop featured on this website, or our more Victorian-history focused version over on our sister website www.victorianworkshop.co.uk


Whichever one you choose, you can be sure that this workshop is guaranteed to inspire pupils young and old!
