COVID-19 All school visit are postponed until further notice.
We will be adding more worksheets, crafts and recipes throughout the coming weeks to help children ( and adults!) keep the boredom at bay and the history alive.
If there is something that you would really like us to cover please do contact us and we will do our best.
We don't only teach about Historic Food but also about everyday life.
We have moved the worksheets to the top of the page during the school closures, so that they can be found quickly and easily
Below you can find our worksheets. The worksheets are FREE to download for Teachers for use in the classroom and for Parents for individual use.
The worksheets are not to be hosted on any other website or sold in any way.
We had hoped to be at Perth Museum and art Gallery on the 28th March, but of course due to Covid-19 that workshop was cancelled.
We have however put together a worksheet with 3 space tasks in it. Younger Space Explorers will need some help but older cadets should be able to complete the task with simple supervision.
Without printing presses , computers or cameras how did medieval Scotland record events, produce books and capture a moment with a picture?

Get the paints out and have fun colouring these pictures, designed exclusively for The Time Travelling Cook .
Kirsty , one of our team members, created these images using references from woodcuts, paintings and embroideries and has drawn them in an early medieval style.
The unicorn drawing is based on the Great Tapestries in Stirling Castle.
Do you think you could embroider the Unicorn?
Why not have a look at our Painting, Printing and Writing worksheet, to create your own medieval paint to help colour in the pictures!

One of our passions here at The Time Travelling Cook is visiting Schools and helping to bring history to life.
Visit any Castle and you can find out about the everyday life of Kings and Queen, and while the Castles do it very well, our aim is to spotlight everyday life of the common people and how certain historic events effected them.
Our School visits take the form of interactive talks and workshops.
We believe Children learn best when immersed in the era , so our workshops encourage dressing up, exploring, handling objects and craft making.
Workshops include games such as the "Rubbish Game" which encourages the children to become historic detectives to find out about a specific person and the " Did they have" runaround game which not only gets the children thinking about food of the chosen era, but also helps run off some excitable energy!
These are just 2 of the many games/activities that we use in the workshops. The workshops and talks are adapted to the needs of the Teacher and the Pupils and can be booked to occur at any point in the subject teaching timeline.
We suggest an age of 7 and above for our workshops but we can arrange a handling session for younger pupils.
The workshops can range from 1 hour basic up to full day workshops which can accommodate 3 to 4 classes at different times of the day.
