One Day is a forward-thinking creative education company, connecting children and learning with creativity and imagination. In this drama workshop, your facilitator will take your KS2 pupils on a drama-filled journey to the banks of the Yellow River where the powerful Shang Dynasty used to dwell. For over five centuries they ruled as an impressive civilisation, with fearsome warriors and remarkable royal palaces. But what happened next?
Using drama and role play, your pupils will become part of the Shang Dynasty's elite army, learn their religious beliefs and discover the skill that went into their famous jade carvings!
In this Shang Dynasty workshop, your class will have the opportunity to express ideas and feelings through voice, movement, role play and drama. In addition, they will:
✨ Examine the historical context of the Shang Dynasty including how it began and ended
✨ Discover who populated the Shang Dynasty, how they lived, worked and shaped the world
✨ Understand the importance of religion and how people communicated with their gods
We can deliver workshops to up to 4 classes in a school day, depending on the type of workshop and age group of the classes involved. Each session caters for a maximum of 35 children.
Absolutely! Drama is a wonderfully inclusive way for children with SEN to access learning. Please let us know of any specific needs or requirements before your day and we can adapt our sessions to fit.
You can also join One Day online and stream creativity straight into your classroom with Uno
