Designed to accommodate the whole of a two-form entry school in a single day, our Big Science Days provide the perfect way to get everyone thinking and talking about science.
The days are intensely active - because, rather than offering "whizz-bang" experiments, our unique approach is to use techniques drawn from the worlds of drama and storytelling to cement existing knowledge, clarify difficult concepts, extend thinking and introduce new content in exciting and engaging ways. And, to celebrate fifty years since Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, any school making a booking this term will receive our beautifully designed and age-differentiated Apollo 11 Fact Files - absolutely free!
"I would like to thank Ady again for delivering the workshops. His own enthusiasm for science shone through from the start to the end of day. The fact that the lessons were active and fun enabled the children to learn in a more physical way than that of the normal classroom based teaching of science. This has given some of the teachers ideas for their own way of teaching science for future lessons. I would definitely recommend As Creatives to fellow teachers." (Heath Fields Primary)
A Big Science Day starts with a whole-school assembly, seeing a member of our team sharing their passion for science - and enlisting some of the pupils' help in bringing to life some Amazing Science Facts. The rest of the day is taken up with workshops for a year group at a time - with whole-school themes including Journeys into Space, Amazing Animals (and Hair raising Humans), Exploring Evolution, Phenomenal Plants, Considering Conservation, Looking at Light, Eclectic Electricity, The Marvel of Materials, May the Force Be With You and The Sense of Sound!
