We've got two new Christmas Workshops to add to our Schools Christmas Offer this year - A Christmas Chorus and The Great Christmas Science Quiz! Read on to discover more...
A Christmas Chorus
Creating and performing a whole-school Seasonal Poem in just a single day!
From Jingle Bells to White Christmas, from Silent Night to The Night Before Christmas, the winter season has inspired some of the most loved and best remembered verses of all time. So what better time of year to write and perform (with actions!) your own whole-school poem?
A quick assembly will see a member of our team sharing their love of both poetry and the season of short days and long nights - and issuing the overall challenge. Working as a year group at a time, pupils will come to realise the power of “choice” in poetry writing, as they take part in our creatively collaborative workshops - with KS2 children benefiting from our unique “RunAround” methodology as they select the themes and content, building up the lines as they go, and EYFS/KS1 pupils using a drama-based game to create a “growing” chorus.
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without gifts, though - so by the end of the day the gift you’ll give to yourselves will be a wonderfully crafted, seasonal poem, getting its very first performance at a second, celebratory assembly to end the day!
The Great Christmas Science Quiz
An amazing way for pupils to learn and remember some seasonal science - up to fourteen classes in a single day!
Christmas is one of the most interesting times of year for a scientist - why do holly, mistletoe and fir trees all stay green, for example? How can rain, slush, hail and snow all be made from the same thing? What do the reindeer eat in the depths of winter - and why exactly did Santa choose the North Pole as his headquarters? A whole-day, whole-school programme for up to 420 pupils, The Great Christmas Science Quiz will answer all these questions - and many more! Following a quick and interactive assembly using the Pole Star to tell the story of some of the science of Christmas, classes will take part in a series of high-energy, active quizzes (with not a desk in sight!) designed to both anchor the science they’re learning in an enjoyable context and introduce new content. And the day will end with a celebratory, closing assembly at which the winners of the Christmas Science Quiz will be revealed ...
Suitable for: EYFS - Year 6 (up to 420 pupils in a single day)
