The Bulldog Trust offers extensive education and outreach resources surrounding each exhibition programme.
We offer storytelling workshops free of charge to all primary school groups. These workshops encourage children to engage with the contents and themes of the exhibitions whilst improving their use of spoken and written descriptive language.
The workshop includes group discussion, pair and small group work, investigation, storytelling performance and writing. The activities and outcomes from the workshop can be used to inspire further work in the classroom.
The workshops are designed and delivered by our partners theWholeStory, who have worked with the education teams at Historic Royal Palaces, the Horniman Museum, the Geffrye Museum and the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Comments from previous school visits:
‘I have led school trips to a variety of London Art galleries for over twenty years. Without question this was the most inspiring and organised visit I have ever been on.’
Sarah Counter, Principal, Canary Wharf College, 2013
'The storytelling workshop was perfect for the children and fitted in really well with our Literacy unit. It has given us lots of scope for continuing the work back at school.'
St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, 2013
'Programmes such as this enable children to experience at close quarters, an eclectic mix of exhibits they would not normally get to see, in small intimate surroundings. The history of the building was also opened up to them and we all left feeling we had shared in something quite magical and special.'
St Saviour's Primary School, 2014
'The workshop leaders were outstanding – the children were captivated by their stories and activities from start to finish.'
