'The content of the day was just right, covering much of the Vikings topic/curriculum covered by the pupils so far. The warm up activities used by the facilitator got the children working together very quickly in a fun and enjoyable way. He was fantastic at delivering the day’s workshop, involving every child in some way. We would definitely recommend Konflux Theatre to other schools – a fun way of bringing the History curriculum to life.'
