Play in a Day

Play in a Day is a whirlwind performance-based workshop for Key Stage 1 & 2 children, based on well-loved children’s storybooks. Children explore the story through drama, music and movement. Each child will design and create an item of costume and work in small groups to paint a backdrop for their tale. In the second half of the workshop the whole group comes together to retell the classic text in a performance packed with actions, movements and sounds! At the end of the workshop there is always a short performance for family, friends or the school.

Play in a Day workshops are ideal for children that speak English as a second language, and are aimed at building confidence and engagement with children’s literature.
