Initially, the workshop was not planned for my class and I was concerned that the content would not be suitable. However, Clem arrived and he had the whole class totally involved in the first few minutes.
When the children started learning the words and actions for the play, it was good to see the confidence levels rising and the whole class were committed. They supported each other throughout the day. They enjoyed performing their play in front of several classes and received loud applause for their effort. It was a long but rewarding day.
A big 'thank you' to Clem who related well to all the children and he never lost his sense of humour throughout the day!

What a fantastic day- it completely exceeded my expectations. I honestly didn’t think it would be possible to get all of that done in just one day! The children absolutely LOVED it! The play content enhanced what we have already been learning and introduced new ideas, all done in a completely child-friendly way. Chris formed excellent relationships with the children, even in such a short space of time. He was energetic and enthusiastic and made the day really fun. Parents, staff and other children commented on how brilliant the finished product was.
Children who may not normally shine/those who don’t always perform academically were given the opportunity to do so and absolutely thrived. It gave them a real confidence boost and has inspired me to have a go at more drama/performance related activities in the future. I would love to do it again and would definitely recommend it to others.

A well-structured day which was led well and allowed the pupil’s plenty of opportunity to practice, rehearse and refine their play. The parents enjoyed watching the play at the end of the day, and seeing how confident their children were.
Konflux Theatre was a fantastic experience for our Year 4 class, and they all enjoyed developing and rehearsing a play all about democracy. Parents, who watched the finished play at the end of the day, all enjoyed watching what had been produced in just a few hours.
