Join Novio for a time-travelling journey from right inside your classroom, with two brand new topics: 

Toys & Games (Early Years & KS1) 

Enter our real-life dolls house, help Alice and the Mad Hatter work out riddles in the museum and watch a Punch and Judy show in our magical world of toys! Join our Victorian toy maker Ebeneezer as he tries to solve the mysterious case of the missing toys, and play along with some Victorian parlour games. Listen to Nanny's story-time whilst learning about toys and games old and new, and what makes the very best doll! 

Stone Age to Iron Age (KS2) 

Join Archie the Archaeologist, Boxgrove Man and a host of other characters from Prehistoric times as they take you through a journey to discover what life was like in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Find out more about how they lived and the tools they used, and take part in our very own 'Flinty Fortunes' game show! 


We also have three Roman virtual field trips available:

Britain before the Romans (KS2)

Discover what life was like before the Roman invasion and find out more from Maeve the Celt about how people lived in the Iron Age. Learn about the Roman invasion of 43AD and how it changed Britain.


Roman Daily Life (KS2)

Understand more about how the Romans lived, what objects they used, what they ate, and delve further into life at Chichester's Roman bath house. Learn more about the language they spoke with a Latin lesson from Katia the Roman.


Roman Army (KS2)

Join our Roman soldier Brutus and learn how and why the Roman army was so successful. Discover more about the armour that they wore and how the army was formed.


Why not book our Virtual City Tour of Chichester to accompany your Roman virtual field trip and resource box for just £70?
