Learn about the history of your souvenir coin!


Teacher section

Thank you for visiting this website, the purpose of which is to provide an added learning opportunity in conjunction with our fun and interactive in-school history workshops, which currently cover the Victorian period, via our Victorian Inventions workshop and the Second World War, via our Air Raid Warden workshops.


All the workshops are designed and delivered by myself, a qualified and experienced primary school teacher and come at a great price (only £195 per full day) with many added extras such as the opportunity to handle over 40 genuine period artefacts in a range of fun, period-related activities.

Intro: who are we and what do we do?

This couldn't be simpler.  Basically you buy a class set of coins, either from one of our workshops or directly from this site, and then each pupil visits the site and looks up the information relating to his or her date.  You can then feedback this to the class as a prompt for further learning or for use in a project or other similar lesson.  In addition, it also provides a perfect homework task for pupils to share with parents.


We hope you like what you find here and please find the time to check out our free teaching resources on the other sites.


Thanks for visiting, happy teaching and if you have any questions please contact me via the 'contact us' page.


Best wishes, Darren (aka Mr B the History teacher)
