Super Fred! (Healthy Living)

KS1 / P1-4
Play In A Day

This Play in a Day is for up to 35 KS1 pupils. The pupils will work with a facilitator throughout the day and have the opportunity to share a short performance to an audience of their choice at the end of the 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.    

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 short 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!

"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. Ireland).
