What is on offer with Minerva ?

Minerva says
 I work closely with the Teachers involved to tailor the day to suit their timing requirements.

 I have worked in many many schools across England, and get repeat visits year after year, as this is something unique and different to get children excited about History and Art. A day they will always remember.


This is what the day includes.

We start with a brief assembly , where I will talk about how the Romans were influenced by mosaics and their history , this is fun and interactive and breaks the ice with the children so they enjoy learning and their attention is held. 

Everybody gets to make a mosaic (even the teachers and helpers if they get time) the boards are given out , but the children will design a mosaic pattern on some paper first, and transfer it onto the board later using the tessellated stones, that look ancient and old just like the Romans would have used.

 Large groups of 60 or more are divided into 2, with an hour for Mosaic making, while the second group does a roman themed activity organised by the school, such as still life drawing using the props I will bring with me. The mosaics take an hour or so to dry so its important that we make them first thing in the morning .


After lunch is supervised grouting, a hands on activity to give the children an understanding of how mosaics work and the secret to their longevity. 


This will be followed with a group talk with all the children in a hall based on the Roman Army.

Real weapons, helmets and shields are demonstrated, which gets everyones attention and full listening ! I will talk about the use of certain weapons and techniques they used to fight the enemy. There is even the opportunity for the children to have fake scars and bruises applied using stage makeup .

There will be an opportunity for the children to try on Helmets ,and take photos as well as ask Minerva questions about the Roman Army or any part of the Days activities.


The fee is £350 for up to 60 Children. 

Thereafter it is £5.00 per child, this includes the completion of a mosaic, all materials, tuition and some Roman coins as prizes to put into the mosaic. 


The fee does not include travel expenses or travel time, which is a rate of 50p per mile return from East Sussex. If travel time is between 2-3 hours then an overnight accommodation may be required and a suitable fee may be applied to cover this, all negotiable.
