Buzz Days

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.

Schools can opt for one of our tried and tested workshops, or ask us to create a bespoke ‘Buzz Day’.

To fall in line with a number of yearly school celebrations, as well as key curriculum topics, we are now delighted to offer a range of ‘specialist buzz days’ that have all the content and fun of a normal buzz day, with a little added extra in the form of an intro assembly, teacher in role, puppetry element, or art exercises!

Go Mantle!

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.
