Science in a Day

Drama workshops to explore scientific topics!

Scientific exploration can be so much fun for pupils, and we’ve created some exciting drama sessions that help make the science curriculum zing!

All of our Science in a Days allow children to develop a greater understanding of the world around them.  We use scientific terms to help children develop their vocabulary and introduce key concepts of scientific inquiry.

Choose either Learn and Present or Explore, both are explained below:

LEARN AND PRESENT:

Based on the always popular Play in a Day format, a Learn and Present day is a fun and engaging day that really motivates your pupils. This format is suitable for 1 class and 1 topic.

Pupils spend a full day with one of our experienced practitioners doing drama activities, playing games, singing songs, and having loads of fun. Across the day they’ll explore key aspects of the chosen topic and create a short performance which is always fun and packed full of information.

At the end of the day the class present their learning as a performance with music, costumes and props to an invited audience of parents and the rest of the school.  It’s loads of fun and the chance to share their learning makes the experience memorable and meaningful for pupils.

EXPLORE:

The Explore format gives you up to 4 workshops across the day (these happen one after the other and are delivered by one of our experienced practitioners.)

  • You can either choose to have all of these workshops on the same theme – great if you’ve got multiple classes in each year.
  • Or you can choose to have each workshop on a different topic, based on what each class is studying.

Each class works on the topic in a creative way, working together to develop their scientific understanding through problem solving games and team work activities which make learning fun and memorable.
