Grace Darling – A Darling Day at the Seaside

England, Scotland, Wales

What do you do when you go to the seaside? And do you think it was the same back in the olden days? Let's meet Grace Darling and find out!

We have developed a very special KS1 One Day Drama workshop, ready for your pupils to bring Grace Darling’s wonderful story and the seaside (with all its wonders) to life! Our One Day Drama project will link directly with your Seaside topic and explore the key themes involved.

  • Compare seaside scenes from today, to those from the past
  • Learn the features found at a seaside place and bring seaside pictures to life using creative techniques!
  • Discover and become all the wonderful creatures and living things that call the beach their home

One Day will work with your pupils through a dynamic and creative workshop with our fully trained professional facilitator. Our One Day facilitator and your budding thespians will explore a diverse range of key themes such as enhanced creative teaching of the chosen topic, stimulating imagination, encouraging discussion, enhanced speaking and listening skills, improved confidence, teamwork  and oh yes… let’s not forget… bags and bags of fun!

"I wanted to put into writing how absolutely fantastic today has been! The children have not only learned a great deal through drama but had fun. They went back to class so motivated and two of my more reluctant 'unenthusiastic' boys were overheard to say ‘I wish every day was like that!’ We are so proud of how hard the children worked. I would thoroughly recommend the 'One day' experience and will be looking forward to booking another workshop that fits in to our creative curriculum theme."
