School workshops

No need for expensive coach hire and entry fees – we bring everything to you!

Welcome to my new site (formerly http://www.jonnycope.com)

My name is Jonathan (Jonny) Cope and I’ve been delivering high-quality educational workshops to schools in the UK for over twenty years.

I receive highly positive feedback from both teachers and pupils and most schools I visit call me back often.

I originally started with workshops focussing on Australia and Aboriginal culture but, due to demand, have added new workshops including the very latest – British Prehistory ‘Stone, Bronze, Iron’.

I am passionate about what I do and really enjoy bringing depth of knowledge to the pupils – be it on Aboriginal culture, Didgeridoo, 3D printing or Early Britain. All the workshops have direct curricular relevance and follow current requirements across several key themes.

Each workshop features presentations by me but I really encourage a ‘hands-on’ approach to learning with objects pupils can handle and discuss and via a wide range of extra activities such as crafts, artwork, etc.

Extra resources can be sent to school as PDF files; information sheets, timelines, images, etc.

I hold an enhanced level DBS certificate and have £1 million PL insurance.

Please feel free to browse the information on this site and do get in touch to discuss a school visit for your school.

“There was a real buzz around the school the day that we had the didgeridoo workshop. The pupils were excited to experience something new and they all loved the sound that the didgeridoo made. Watching their faces was a real treat and they were all fascinated during the whole school assembly. There was a lot of laughter and animated chatting amongst the pupils throughout the day. The teachers were very pleased with how stimulated their classes had been by the stories told and the musical experience. Jonny had a lovely manner with the pupils and he was clearly interested in what they had to tell him.  Our head teacher is hoping to be able to invite him back to do another workshop in the future.”

A real buzz
