FAQsEverything you need to know about One Day and our range of creative school workshops.
Hello! We are One Day Creative, a forward-thinking education company who create quality educational experiences that make learning fun. Our engaging primary school workshops use the performing arts to empower young people – helping both pupils and teachers access the creativity in their curriculum.
These workshops take place in your school and come in two forms: in-person and online. If you’d like to know more about our online workshops, please visit our sister website, Uno. Otherwise, please read on!
All of our in-person workshops last for a full day and can be delivered as 1 hour, 2 hour or full-day sessions, depending on the topic. On the day itself, a member of our facilitator team will visit your school and work directly with your pupils.
We use an exciting blend of drama, movement and role play to bring your chosen topic to life. Our workshops are highly interactive and include plenty of on-your-feet-fun as well as opportunities for learning and discussion. This video gives you a flavour of how our workshops run.
Please note were are not a ‘performance’ company and therefore:
- We don’t perform in role
- We don’t wear costumes
- We don’t provide historical artefacts
Instead, our performing arts professionals use an array of engaging activities to ignite your pupils’ interest in the topic, share key messages and encourage plenty of teamwork. All we need is a large clear space to work in and a teacher or member of staff to be present throughout – our friendly facilitator will take care of the rest!
We have over 80+ in-school workshops to choose from. Our most popular subjects cover History, STEM, World Culture, Literacy and important annual events like Safer Internet Day and Anti-Bullying Week. A few of our favourites include:
- Great Fire of London
- Earthquakes & Volcanoes
- Ancient Maya
- Dance Carnival Brazil
- Religious Festivals
- Stone Age
- The Jungle Book
- Forces and Magnets
- Into the Screen (Online Safety)
- Anti-Bullying Week workshops

The majority of our workshops are for KS1 or KS2 pupils. We also have a number of EYFS options.
Our experienced facilitators can work with a maximum of 35 pupils per workshop session. This means that we can cater for the following numbers across your day:
- Full-day workshop: one class
- 2-hour workshop: two classes
- 1-hour workshop: four classes
Absolutely, we can adapt our sessions to accommodate SEN pupils within a mainstream setting. Drama is a wonderfully inclusive way for children to access learning. Please let us know of any specific needs or requirements before your day.
