Bigfoot believes that at the heart of all high quality learning experiences is the opportunity for children to actively engage with people, places and situations. Our ‘Go Mantle’ and ‘Buzz’ days encourage students to become part of the story, helping them to understand more intricately about themselves and the world in which they live.
Bigfoot’s ‘Buzz Days’ utilise the expertise of a trained Bigfooter who will bring with them an imaginary kit bag of inspiring activities that will enthuse your students about a chosen topic or theme…and all based on the curriculum!
We can work with the same group all day, or up to 4 different classes, delivering up to two workshop topics within the school day.
All Bigfooter’s are experienced professional arts facilitators who have been trained to help equip your students with the skills to investigate, discuss and practically explore any given topic creatively. All we ask is that the students be brought to and from the working area (classroom or hall), as well as registered, by a member of school staff, and we’ll do the rest!
Schools can opt for one of our tried and tested workshops, or ask us to create a bespoke ‘Buzz Day’.

Mantle of the Expert is an inspirational method of using drama to bring alive any given topic or theme by enabling children to become ‘Experts’. Students will work together in teams to practically explore and problem- solve a given dilemma, culminating in them providing a solution for their ‘client’ in the form of an end of day/s presentation of work.
Schools can opt for one of our tried and tested ‘Go Mantle’ workshops, or we are happy to write a bespoke ‘Go Mantle’ workshop for your school based on any suitable topic.
