Living on the New Moon

England, Scotland, Wales

How do societies make decisions? What is the role of Government? How we morally decide what’s best for those around us? In this interactive workshop we ask all these questions and more! We explore what it would be like to set up and govern ‘New Moon’, a city being built on the moon. Pupils will have to make democratic decisions, decide on Law and Order and find out what kind of education system they will need to develop on ‘New Moon’. An ideal workshop to accompany a visit to the House of Commons!

Your class will…

  • Explore the meaning and importance of Democracy
  • Explore why we have rules and laws in place, and the purpose of Government
  • Discuss and debate moral and social dilemas
  • Have a great day!

Option 1 : Creative Play workshops are short and sweet, designed to be a burst of creativity to keep children engaged. As the sessions are usually only an hour long, we can work with four classes across the school day.

Option 2 : One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
