The children learnt to use and apply new skills associated with drama and to work co-operatively with children they do not normally work with to produce an end product that they shared with their peers. We felt that it went a long way to raising the children's self-esteem and made them realise the importance of being an active listener. We were very impressed with the information that was supplied prior to our booking the work shop and how flexible the company was in meeting the needs of our school. Our instructor was able to identify the children who needed TLC and those who would be prepared to take on a more challenging role in the production as well as those who needed challenging to raise their self-esteem. She managed to engage with all the children and ensured all the children were active participants in the play.

'The director was upbeat, supportive, enthusiastic and knew how to talk to the children on their level. She taught small sections of the play in small chunks to enable the children to learn lines. She also taught them how to use their voice and bodies to make a better performance... After the event, the children are still asking when she can come back in and do more drama with them... Konflux get a BIG thumbs up and 10 out of 10 from Victoria Primary School!

The Workshop Leader worked really hard all day with the children. He was enthusiastic and engaging and used the children’s natural ability well to create the play. The way that he brought it all together so that the final performance was quite spectacular was outstanding. The children really excelled themselves in the final performance. The audience were totally engaged and loved the jokes and comedy acting moments. Some of the younger reception-aged children spontaneously gave the cast a standing ovation at the end which showed how amazing the final performance was. The children really enjoyed the whole experience which was linked to our pirate story theme for World Book Day. ‘Treasure Island’ was definitely the highlight of the week. Konflux kept in touch well before the workshops and even called on the day to check that everything was going well. It was a bit of a risk booking with a new company but I would thoroughly recommend the ‘Play in a Day’ as a wonderful experience and good value for money.
