Play in a Day

Play in a day is a great way for children to work together, develop their drama skills and most importantly learn more of the stories from The Bible. We believe through using drama and acting out our well known figures from The Bible that children will engage with and be more likely to relate to the stories then from simply reading them.

So what is a Play in a Day?! The day consists of one of our practitioners spending the full day with one class (no more than 35 children) to create a play with them, which they will perform to the rest of the school at the end of the day. We bring the script, the props and music - all we need from you is a hall and a bunch of energetic, imaginative children!

As well as a full day of drama, we will also provide a resource pack full of activities, worksheets and ideas for you to take back into the classroom, and a B Tales certificate to congratulate your class on their performance!

All of our Play in Day scripts are moderated to suit either KS1 or KS2 classes.

Girl Power

This is one of our favourite play in a days as it focuses on all of the strong women in The Bible! Your class will hear and act out the tales of Ruth, Esther and Mary to name but a few and learn from the journeys which they took. But don't worry there is plenty for the boys to do too!

Easter Egg

Easter Egg looks at the true meaning and origins of Easter. It tells the Easter story from Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey, to his death and rising from the dead. The play in a day is popular around the time of Easter celebrations but we believe Jesus' resurrection should be celebrated all year round too!
