Cascading Carnival - Staff CPD Masterclass Workshops
Sessions run after schools as twilight staff CPD, each session lasts 2 hrs. By the end of each session teachers will have learnt the skills to cascade the techniques to their own classes, and will take away a resources pack of materials to make the project with all their pupils. We can work with groups of 10-20 staff, from the same key stage with 2 artists.
Your School Carnival Parade
“Your School Carnival Parade” uses breathtaking giant puppetry, larger than life costumes, music and movement to explore a theme and hold a celebration at your school. This outdoor carnival experience is suitable for primary school children of all ages from foundation to yr 6, involving all teachers & support staff in a full school production.
There’s Something in The Water
“There’s Something in The Water” is an outdoor participatory mass movement carnival show.
