Let us take you to another world and teach classes in a way you’ll have never seen before. Nowpressplay have designed a fully emersive experience, based on the concept of silent discos. With each student having their own headset, choose from a huge range of story lines for your class to experience history like never before.
Have them act out their responses to the sounds, sights and smells being described to them. You can also split the class, to have different viewpoints of the same narrative running simultaneously, provoking interesting discussions and insights.
From Battle of Hastings to Egyptians and everything in-between, use emotion, movement and imagination to teach the subjects like never before and transport students to an adventure they’ll never forget.
- Suitable for ages: all primary
- Ideal class size: small or large groups catered for
- Subjects covered: history, music, arts, literacy and drama
Make sure your students have the skills required for an ever-evolving job market. With more and more industries looking to increase their mobile and tablet presence, introduce your students to the “back-end” of the ipads and apps they’ll be so used to using. Learn be basics of coding and app development, with the result being their very own app or game.
A highly interactive and relatable challenge, the brief can be moulded to help support other current topics on top of ICT, whether that be maths, history, geography or a language. Engage your pupils in a new way of combining learning both subjects and skills as well as empowering each other through testing and trial sessions amongst the class.
- Great for: all subjects
- Suitable for ages: all primary
Drone programmers is a highly engaging workshop that allows children to programme and fly their own drones. An ever growing trend across a range of industries, most particularly within media and video technology, drones are making their way into every day life. From long spanning panoramic photoshoots to use within security and surveillance, give your children a chance to get their hands on their very own drone.
Engaging and highly relevant, teach your pupils basic coding skills using technology they’re unlikely to have ever seen before, let alone be let loose on.
Fully integrated onto our ipad software, students will build a set of code resulting in their drone taking off and flying where they tell it to. Depending upon ability, curriculum and facilities, we can adapt the workshop around your needs.
- Suitable for groups: up to a full class size
- Ages: all primary
- Adaptable to lesson plans including: ALL
Let your students give Disney and Pixel a run for their money with our pro animation workshop. Using stop motion photography, groups can make art projects come to life, and star in their very own story. Using anything from lego to clay, students will create both the characters and set, then use numerous images to create moving pictures. Take them to the next level with music, voice overs and scripts, helping take those tough and more monotonous subjects instantly more interactive and interesting.
Each team will need to work together to create a concept for the story line, record any lines, add music and voiceover needed, as well as build sets and characters to fill the images. For examples of previous work, see below.
- Suitable for ages: ALL
- Great for: history and biology
- Ideal team size: small groups or whole classes can be catered for
