2. PREPARE

Our team arrive with all materials and equipment. However, there are important things we'd like your help with.

PROVIDE BASIC RESOURCES

  • Slide projector and sound system: Presentation slides received and loaded onto PC. Video image and sound quality checked

  • Pre-agreed classroom space configured for the workshop

  • Three simple musical instruments with high, medium and low notes, such as: a triangle; violin and large drum.

  • Flip chart and white tack 

  • Child friendly scissors 

  • One Pritstick per student 

  • Plenty of felt tips and pencils

  • Post it notes

ALLOCATE LEADERS

Decide who the people will be who are working directly with us in the classroom. They will help plan the workshop and manage the group on the day. We are always working to improve and these leaders will gather and send feedback after the event.

PLAN TO CELEBRATE AND SHARE

To maximise the benefit of the day create follow-on events and projects. Encourage students to share what they have learnt by making a film, an exhibition or assembly. With this in mind think about who should join in: art, literacy or history teachers for example.

CLARIFY LOGISTICS

Let us know some essential basics:​

  • Arrangements for arrival made e.g. Visitors names logged, arrival time and host person present, lunch.

  • DBS or identification requirements clarified.
