Play In A Day

"September 2016 marked 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl - the world’s number one storyteller. Throughout 2016, there were lots of celebrations for Roald Dahl 100, focusing on Roald Dahl's gloriumptious stories and characters and delivering a year packed with squiffling surprises and treats for everyone.” -www.roalddahl.com

In order to celebrate Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday we developed a Play in a Day that looks at Roald’s life, the wonderful stories he created and the messages that each story shares. Along the way we'll meet some of the wonderful characters he created.

Play in a Day is a full days participatory workshop for a group of up to 30 pupils. The pupils spend the day in your school hall with one of our a professional workshop leaders putting together their own performance all about the chosen subject. They then present their 10-15 minute performance back to peers and parents at the end of the day so everyone gets to be involved! In all of our workshops, the aim is to increase subject knowledge, develop PSHE skills; build confidence, develop speaking and listening skills and engage in team work. All workshops are also designed to be an enjoyable and memorable experience for your pupils.

'The children absolutely loved the day. They had a wonderful time experiencing the life of Roald Dahl, taking on roles of different characters and having the opportunity to perform for their peers after just 1 day of practice. Konflux were wonderful, professional and provided the children with an experience that, as a teacher, it is difficult to provide. The children found the acting and performing incredibly enjoyable and, after the day was over, were talking about it with their peers for weeks.' School in Crewe
