African History of Sport Family Workshops

Starting Friday 13th April 2018



Accompany your child/ren to our African History of Sport Family Workshops!


Learning as a family encourages, enables and empowers parents to develop a deeper understanding of how to expand your children's learning at home. Family learning raises academic achievement; and enhance family wellbeing.

Make History come to life with an 'African History of Sport' workshop led by Charmaine Simpson of Black History Studies, in partnership with the Petrie Museum. Children will experience learning about different areas of sporting history; and will be able to explore the evidence of sports played in Ancient Egypt, and other Nile Valley Civilisations. Children will be able to use different learning styles to solve problems, as they work in teams, enjoy themselves, AND learn African History.

The workshops are based on 'The African History of Sport' documentary, produced by the Institute of Black Culture, Media and Sport in 2017.

There are three workshops covering different areas of sport. You can book for individual sessions or book to attend all 3 workshops.

All workshops will be held at The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, Malet Place, London, WC1E 6BT. For location details, please go to
