We bring history to life in your school
History provides us with so many fascinating characters to learn about, all with stories to tell.
Our philosophy is simple: children learn best when they are enthused, engaged and actively-involved. At Magic Door Education, we bring those stories to life through our three core aims; inspire, discover, learn.
We’re passionate about providing children with real experiences to enable them to understand the past and to inspire their curiosity about history. Most of all, we think learning should be fun!
Let us enthuse your class by getting hands-on with our huge range historical artefacts and resources, as we bring the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of history into your school.
"Thank you to Magic Door Education Ltd for delivering a fantastic WW2 workshop to our Y3 children. They thoroughly enjoyed deepening their historical knowledge through fun, engaging and practical activities."
Year 3 teacher, Stoke-on-Trent
"We thought the day was great, lots for the children to handle and learn about, lots of practical activities for them to join in with, which was fantastic! They learnt a lot without realising it some of the time, I think! Thank you for the opportunity for the children to learn about the Land Army. I will recommend your workshops to others."

"We have all learned so much today! To see the children all so excited to learn more about WW2 as we move through our topic is amazing!"
Year 5 teacher, Stoke-on-Trent
"I just wanted to say a big thank you again for our WOW day. The kids loved it and have started to put their new knowledge into our history lessons. The day ran so smoothly and was so well planned with a huge array of resources for the children to try out and experience. Your knowledge of the era is undoubtedly vast which helped answer all the wonderful questions our kids asked. The relationship you built instantly with the kids is a credit to yourself, a true natural in the teaching game."

"We loved our workshop; Emma had every available resource under the sun and was so organised and well prepared. Having hands on experiences with artefacts which we could never have given our children was invaluable."
Year 3 teacher, Lancashire
"This week, our Year 6 classes had a brilliant day with Emma, exploring World War 2. The children had so much fun handling the amazing artefacts Emma brought with her and they learnt so much about what it was like for the Land Girls and the important role they had to play on the home front. All of the activities were so well planned and sparked the children’s imagination and curiosity. Thank you so much."
Year 6 teacher, Staffordshire
"Absolutely fantastic day looking at the Anglo-Saxons with Magic Door Education with my Year 4 class. We all had a brilliant time, learnt lots and have remembered it at a later date too! Really recommend to everyone!"
Year 4 teacher, Preston
"Amazing! My children have been in Emma's workshop and they haven't stopped! Butter-churning, cow-milking, seed planting, very active learning. I will definitely be recommending her!"
"The children and staff really enjoyed the Anglo-Saxon workshop. Thank you for the resources! The follow up materials provided after the workshop specifically for our school curriculum were invaluable. A* A* A* !"
Year 4 teacher, Preston, Anglo-Saxon workshop
"I would like to commemorate you on your amazing work on the Anglo-Saxon day you did for us at Bleakhouse Primary School.
You were extremely well organised with each activity you had set up and provided us with a wide range of activities to consolidate learning in each session.
The children all enjoyed the day very much, as did the staff involved with the Year group that day.
Thank you once again for the day it was very practical and informative and one that we will remember for a long time to come."
