Play In A Day

Now you might have heard of Superman and Batman and Spiderman. You might have heard of Wonderwoman and the Incredible Hulk…but Super Fred is the biggest superhero of them all… and that's a fact! The reason you've not heard of him is because he's still only 6 years old and his Mum won't let him be in the news in case it all goes to his head.

A Play in a Day for Year 1, 2 , 3 & 4 children

The trouble is Fred doesn't listen to his Mum and goes to bed late, doesn't eat his vegetables or play outside in the fresh air and he soon begins to lose his super powers.

Working with a professional theatre director for a whole day, the children produce a 10 - 15 minute ensemble play to present back to peers and even parents! Basic props, costumes and music are used to enhance the drama and reinforce the learning within the play.

Super Fred! is an excellent introduction to topics on healthy eating and exercise and ties in with the Healthy Schools programme and work in PSHE. Throughout the day the children will improve their speaking and listening skills, build confidence and of course have lots of fun!

What the Children Learn…

  • Exploring how they can use their voice, movement and expression in role play and drama
  • Expressing ideas, thoughts and feelings through role play and drama
  • Responding to performance
  • Presenting drama and stories to others
  • Individual confidence
  • Teamwork and Awareness of Others
  • Public speaking
  • Understanding healthy eating issues and the importance of regular exercise

'Great enthusiasm, lovely message from Super Fred play, very age appropriate and great for children’s confidence. We have had Konflux Theatre’s Play in a Day annually for a number of years now. The delivery of the programme is excellent and in terms of enjoyment, confidence building and educational value we find it to be highly effective.' School in Belfast, N.
