Workshops

“it was perfectly tailored to the curriculum and learning needs of my class.The workshops complemented and enriched our Geography rainforests topic, and also our learning in science ”
- Year 5 teacher, Chichester, West Sussex

Whether it is inviting children to develop their use of simile and metaphor in English by writing smell-inspired poems or learning about history through the stinky aromas of the past (Ancient Egyptian Mummification anyone?), structured activities incorporating fragrance and smell can truly support and inspire pupils of all abilities.

At Key Stage 2 of the primary National Curriculum, your students are developing their reasoning and persuasive skills, as well as an openness and curiosity about the world. The Marty the Mighty Nose Workshops, organised by The Fragrance Foundation, will play to these unique and new found strengths whilst also helping to pen communications between students as well as teachers.

Use Marty the Mighty Nose, the smell-finder-in-chief of a faraway jungle tribe, to get your pupils to use their sense of smell as inspiration to develop pupils’ descriptive vocabulary and imaginative writing.

Teachers sit back and relax while Richard E. Grant guides you through your very own workshop, click here for the videos.

You will need a couple of print outs and smelly materials to bring your workshop to life. Download the info here.  

Each workshop lasts for one hour for a whole class, and is suitable for pupils aged 7-11. Content this year is specifically tailored to the English Primary National Curriculum.

Marty the Mighty Nose is supported by the Fragrance Foundation, a not-for-profit educational body. Members come from across the fragrance industry and are supporting the scheme as a philanthropic initiative.
