November Round-Up

What a busy month November has been! It’s been non-stop, but full of fun visits, great feedback and quite a bit of coffee.

The month started with Road Safety workshops in partnership with Redbridge Council, taking our Streets Ahead Play in a Day to schools in their area.

“We had Andrew Cleaver in to our school to carry out ‘A play in a day’ workshop all about Road safety.  It was amazing for the children and Andrew was so entertaining that the children were totally engrossed in the whole drama day.  They were buzzing with excitement and many of them performed outside of their comfort zone.  Andrew was an amazing teacher who knew how to engage the children and make the whole experience memorable.  I would definitely recommend Konflux Theatre to other schools, it was a wonderful opportunity and the performance created was phenomenal!  I will definitely be booking again with them!”

John Bramston Primary

The Bard was in the air at the beginning of November, with schools in Barnsley, Higher Kinnerton and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne having Shakespeare workshops.

Once again, pupils in school have thoroughly enjoyed working with Konflux theatre and Mark in particular. They gained so much throughout the day and now have a greater understanding of Romeo and Juliet and the themes running through the play. Mark listened to what I wanted the class to take from the experience and adapted as necessary. A valuable learning experience which pupils will undoubtedly remember.

Jump Primary School

We can’t talk about November without mentioning Anti-Bullying Week. Our facilitators delivered 90 Anti-Bullying workshops from 15th – 19th November, that’s around 2,700 children who’ve been able to take part in fun, interactive and educational workshops to help tackle the problem of bullying. At Konflux HQ, we donned our funky footwear for Odd Socks Day, tackled bookings for next Anti-Bullying Week and gathered some wonderful feedback.

It’s incredible how children can learn a whole play in a day! They are learning an important message while enjoying themselves at the same time. It is a wonderful opportunity for all children to shine!

St Augustine’s C of E Primary School

Storm Arwen didn’t stop any of our wonderful facilitators getting to schools – though they all arrived slightly wind-swept! We’d also like to take the time to mention that during the ever-changing levels of infection and restrictions around Covid-19, we are still able to deliver all of our workshops in a completely Covid safe way. If you need any more information on this, please call the office 01937 832 740.

It’s time to have a rest, put the Christmas decorations up and gear up for Pantomime Workshops, preparations for the Scotland Tour and finalising details for Internet Safety Week!
