Autumn 2021 - Outer Space

From September to December 2021, Perform for Schools is offering drama-based workshops to primary schools as part of our popular Drama4All project.

Each 30 minute session is led by a professionally trained DBS-checked actor in costume appearing 'in role' as kooky character The Little Green Alien. Using drama, dance and singing, they'll take the children through a fascinating improvisation through Outer Space.

Having completed some energetic astronaut training, the children will board a spaceship and visit planets Pluto, Venus and Mars learning about their physical environments with a little help from the cheese-chomping Man in the Moon.

Our sessions will:

  • Complement an Outer Space topic or books you may be reading, such as Look Up, Goodnight Spaceman, Man On The Moon and You Can't Eat a Princess!
  • Provide an excellent stimulus for creative writing, an art project, role play... the possibilities are endless!
  • Encourage confident speaking and good listening using rhyme and poetry.
  • Be facilitated whilst meeting Covid-Safe guidelines.

They are a perfect introduction to drama for Nursery and Reception children, whilst challenging the KS1 children with a more advanced lesson plan. At the heart of every session we aim to promote confidence and communication skills. which is Perform's ethos.

Each 30 minute workshop is led by a DBS-checked teacher and is specially formulated for children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

We will come to your school and spend around 30 minutes with each class, ideally in the school hall.

These workshops are extremely popular and are booked on a first come first served basis. To book your school's FREE Outer Space workshop, complete our online booking form.

Caitlin was fantastic and despite COVID restrictions still managed to engage and enthuse all the children. Teachers commented on the level of interaction and Caitlin’s excellent delivery of the sessions. The children had a wonderful time.

Alana was amazing, so passionate and enthusiastic about drama! She had the children gripped throughout and they clearly enjoyed every minute of the workshop. Each workshop was adapted to make it age appropriate and all children could then participate. A great session, largely due to Alana's presentation.

– Natasha Moynihan

Thank you Samantha! The children had a brilliant morning and haven't stopped talking about it.

– Karen Ford

Feedback from all classes lucky enough to have a session has been great, we are so glad you were able to come into schools again and Tamsin was brilliant.

Some of the children are still drawing and making fairies!

From the very start of the session the children were captivated and engaged with Andrew in his role of a superhero. There was a really good balance of hype and excitement as well as the information regarding the 3 R's. It allowed us to return to class and continue with the idea of "saving the planet" Would consider booking again. Many thanks
