MORE TIME FOR TEACHING

INCREASED CONCENTRATION

Lack of concentration is becoming one of the most detrimental issues in education. Having a historical character in the classroom is a guaranteed way to excite and engage your class. Each character is in full costume and is incredibly knowledgable about their particular topic, culture and heritage.

CROSS-CURRICULAR LEARNING

Each character has a range of challenges, games and tasks which cover multiple school subjects simultaneously. Your class will learn new information whilst developing social skills and confidence.

Let's kickstart your next topic...

Ms Cliffe (Hucknall) Y4 Teacher

In my opinion, the timing was great – the children really bought into your character early on and wanted to get on board and help. The activities had enough layers to them to keep the children engaged and brought up a range of challenging questions […], well thought through and straight to the point!

Ms Menevse (Nottingham) Y5 Teacher

Bjorn was a roaring success! We had a great day and the children were really disappointed that you were not still in the cupboard on Wednesday! All three sessions were enjoyed by the children with the burning of the boats taking prime position.

Mrs Monach (Sheffield) Y3/4 Teacher

‘The Robin Hood Experience’ was amazing from my point of view. You created a totally believable moral dilemma for the children which engaged them in the whole topic from the outset. They used the experience to develop their debating skills, practise justifying their opinions and they thoroughly enjoyed it too. A superb learning experience.

Mrs Orchiston (Arnold) Deputy Head

A really good day with lots done! […] I really liked the writing a message in a bottle, so simple but effective […] A well organised and resourced creative day around the book Kensuke’s Kingdom.

Mr Wheatley-Smith (Derby) Teaching Assistant

Brilliant. It’s great to watch how you engage with the children in a completely different way. You created a character the children could believe in and were very good at answering the questions (no matter how random) […] I have had lots of questions from other members of staff about where to find you, so I’m sure we’ll be booking you again very soon.

Mr Drayton (Hucknall) Y6 Teacher

An absolutely terrific day was had by the children. Bjorn the Viking gave us a scare and had our engagement right from the off! The day was jam packed with a vast range of interactive games and activities that deepened our Viking knowledge and understanding. We can’t wait to have you back again soon!

Bloop

Bloop is a video series we launched in Summer 2019. It has become a launchpad to encourage schools to have conversations with children about real-world issues. Each video is roughly five minutes long and promotes and supports conversations about bullying, grief, mental health, climate change and many other tricky topics for the classroom.

Local Heritage Project

In 2019, we were funded by Nottinghamshire County Council to visit all the primary schools in Hucknall. In true Blue Kazoo style, we took Lord Byron into the classrooms to share his life stories and inspire the children to write some new poetry whilst discovering some local history.
