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.

Just wanted to say that children were 100% engaged, they talked about the workshop afterwards. Managing the behaviour was excellent. I had only positive feedback from the other teachers too.

Ben was very professional: phoning me a week before, arriving on time, dealing with last minute time changes. He ran the sessions very efficiently, the children absolutely loved them. The teachers were very impressed with Ben.

Another fantastic visit from Perform! A huge thank you to Sarah who delivered a wonderful workshop to our EYFS children. I have received lots of positive feedback from teachers regarding Sarah's enthusiasm and ability to engage even the youngest of children. Our classes absolutely LOVED their adventure 'Under the Sea'! We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Joanna was great with the children and they all had a fantastic time. They spoke about ways in which we can encourage recycling at school after the workshop.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and continued to perform Peter Pan in their role play long after the workshop had finished. Thank you.

All children enjoyed the sessions hugely. The adults who were present spoke highly of the session. Our reception teachers commented about the great assessment/observations they could do of their class.
