The Cabinet of Curiosity


Miss Tycal’s Cabinet of Curiosity holds many objects of interest – some of them, secret…

Discover their stories, and more, in the gap between school and home. 


Our after school sessions provide a unique opportunity for children to creatively explore their imaginations, whilst developing ideas for storytelling and magicorical wordery – ie writing. With elements of drama, art, design technology, PHSCE and history, participants engage in progressive, fun, learning activities, based upon a (mainly fantastical) half termly theme which builds understanding and confidence.


We also offer a special, home ed version of this. See below for details.
