The Workshop Leader worked really hard all day with the children. He was enthusiastic and engaging and used the children’s natural ability well to create the play. The way that he brought it all together so that the final performance was quite spectacular was outstanding. The children really excelled themselves in the final performance. The audience were totally engaged and loved the jokes and comedy acting moments. Some of the younger reception-aged children spontaneously gave the cast a standing ovation at the end which showed how amazing the final performance was. The children really enjoyed the whole experience which was linked to our pirate story theme for World Book Day. ‘Treasure Island’ was definitely the highlight of the week. Konflux kept in touch well before the workshops and even called on the day to check that everything was going well. It was a bit of a risk booking with a new company but I would thoroughly recommend the ‘Play in a Day’ as a wonderful experience and good value for money.

The experience was a really positive one and thoroughly enjoyed by the children and audience alike. We were really pleased to help our talented actors excel in this way. The children found it to be a lot of fun and had a great time with some of their own input being used. We were proud of their work. There was a very relaxed but organised feel to the day. Elle was very friendly, professional and enthusiastic. The children involved were all keen, motivated and enthusiastic about their experience. The children knew their parts well and had obviously worked hard to produce the finished product. The audience really enjoyed it!

Matt energised and entertained an entire key stage. He used a range of subjects including Literacy, History, popular culture, sport, teamwork and of course, drama. He was particularly effective with some of the Y6 children who might have been less enthusiastic following SATs. Matt was flexible and worked around the needs of our school. Matt came to our school loaded with ideas, energy and enthusiasm. This proved to be a contagious mix which inspired all the pupils across a very wide range of abilities. He got everyone working and brought out some brilliant performances from some unlikely places! His management of a large group of children was exemplary. We will certainly recommend Konflux and in particular Matt Driver to other schools.
