Takeovers

Week-long Adventures in Learning that unite a whole school in a dramatic quest. Normal classes are suspended and all year groups are immersed in KIT’s narrative, uniting with teachers to overcome unexpected challenges. Adventures involve performances, drama workshops and teacher-led activities with curriculum-linked lesson plans appropriate for each age group designed by KIT in dialogue with teachers. KIT delivers CPD training for all participating teachers.

Save Our Stories

This adventure imagines that a rogue organisation, ‘The Society Against Stories’, has infiltrated the Department of Education and persuaded them to pass a law banning all stories from schools. Throughout the week pupils lauch their own 'Save Our Stories' campaigns, create stories that they perform and write their own stories collated into a giant surprise to convince the dastardly Agent Grey to change their mind. Will the school be able to get the law changed…?

 

This Takeover is focused on literacy and creative writing, whilst developing an understanding of the importance of stories.

'Every child in my class loved the week - they are sure to remember it for years to come.'

Liam McQuade, Assistant Head and Literary Lead, The Gateway Free Primary School

Enviro Shutdown

The school has recently been named a 'T.R.E.E. School', with responsibility for leading sustainability in the community. But a stingy financial inspector says sustainability is too expensive and the plan has to be scrapped. Through campaigning and creative endeavours, can the whole school work together to create long term sustainable changes and change the inspectors mind?

We are hosting this Takeover at Battersea Arts Centre in October 2022 for families in Wandsworth. For more information, click here.  

 

This Takeover focuses on performance, education around the climate crisis, and developing resilience in young people.

Science Week

Keegu the Alien has unexpectedly arrived in the school and needs children to help them return home. Children across Key Stage 1 work together to build a rocket for Keegu and eventually launch it into space.

 

This Takeover focuses on Science, Space, Literacy and Caring for others topics.
