Teacher launches interactive 'adventures in wonderland' workshops for children

The 'Emily’s Adventures in Wonderland' workshops cover sci­ence, history, geography, art and music

    Students get to grips with one of the workshops

    A Jewish teacher with 25 years’ experience has launched a series of interactive workshops on national curriculum sub­jects for primary school-age children.

    Mrs Emily Ben-Ze’ev, who taught in Jewish schools including Menorah Primary School and Mathilda Marks-Kennedy, said the work­shops, under the title, Emily’s Adventures in Wonderland, covered sci­ence, history, geography, art and music and would create “hands-on, exciting opportunities” for children to learn in a “fun and exciting” way.

    Mrs Ben Ze’ev, who received “Outstanding” grades in every Ofsted inspection she underwent as a teacher, said: “I do think that children need creativ­ity as part of their education — and if you can link it cross-curricular, it’s even better.

    The former teacher is invited into schools to deliver the workshops direct to classes. Sessions include rocket-making, volcano erup­tions, bubble-making, as well as explo­sions, sounds, stories behind classical music, customs around the world, and world music.

    She said: “I have Egyptian costumes, Greek helmets, matryoshka dolls, a bit of the Berlin Wall, lava from Mount Etna, antlers from Lapland, miniature terracotta warriors, an Aztec calendar, some artefacts from World War Two…

    “I have a whole collection of wonder­ful stuff from my travels, which I think will really inspire the children.
