Once upon a time in Nursery Land, Little Bo-Peep's sheep went missing in the dead of night. A thief!! But who is this unknown villain...?
What is a Space Angel Bat Dragon? What did Hogarth do that he later regretted? Why did the Iron Man feel misunderstood?
Described by some as a modern-day fairy story, this classic tale describes the unexpected arrival in England of a giant “metal man” who befriends a small boy. Using this text as a stimulus only, we will use various drama techniques to explore the characters, spend time looking at the ‘inner workings’ of the machines, and work as a team to create the Iron Man himself. Become the levers to move body parts and even compose his very own theme tune!
The workshop aims to provide an opportunity for children to think out of the box and let their imagination run wild! They will be encouraged to create characters and stories; the ideal basis for exploring this widely loved text.
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!
"There was such a buzz around school on Monday morning when word got out about the quality of the workshops! We were delighted that your staff commented on how creative and enthusiastic the children were as well as complimenting them on their behaviour and cooperation skills. This balance was achieved because the workshops were really well managed to ensure that the children explored characters and events in lots of different ways, with each class being given scope to be imaginative and express diverse ideas whilst being motivated and guided to remain fully on task. It was a wonderful week for pupils and great CPD for staff too, as many of them have talked about incorporating some of the activities and techniques used by your team!"
