From Greek Gods who have been evicted from Olympus to explorers with no sense of direction, primary classes face an unusual day at school when strange characters burst into the classroom with a big problem that only pupils can fix. A world of possibilities open up when fossils are discovered beneath the playground, a lady with a mysterious suitcase needs help unlocking the contents and Zeus strides into the school hall.
Get in touch with Coney if you’d like to bring Inspiration Days to your school.
As part of Coney’s Adventures in Learning programme, we created 5 workshops to inspire and motivate pupils at two Kilburn primary schools, ahead of their big projects in the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum. Using fun learning activities, engaging narratives and experienced facilitator performers we swept pupils into their very own adventure for the day.
Inspiration Day topics include:
Jurassic Forest: an introduction to fossils, palaeontology and Mary Anning.
London’s Buildings: exploring old and new structures in London, 2D/3D modelling and literacy.
Exploring the World: an introduction to different cultures, buildings and languages.
Natural Disasters: exploring types of natural disasters and case studies.
Ancient Greeks: exploring different elements of Ancient Greek life and its legacy today.
“The workshops that were tailor-made to fit our topics were both engaging and exciting for the children and adults! Coney made learning come to life and inspired every child…”
