our Frozen Planet
A 1-hour Sensory Non-Fiction Event for KS2
Rug up warm, we're off on an adventure to the coldest place on Earth.
Board a research vessel bound for Zavodvoski Island in the Sub Antarctic before journeying further south to the wilds of Antarctica.
Discover what it looks, feels, tastes, smells and sounds here in the furthest reaches of our planet.
Meet the animal inhabitants, traipse across the treacherous landscape and discover explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton's incredible story of survival.
There'll be opportunities to dress up and make some noise, leaving you inspired by nature, and committed to protecting our wild neighbours.
With stories from my non-fiction books Frozen Planet II with the BBC, and How Does Chocolate Taste on Everest?
How does it work?
This is a fully interactive, hands-on event that has been performed at festivals and schools around the country. It's loud, the children get to dress-up and we will laugh a lot! For that reason, there are a few set-up requirements for it to work: we need a big(ish) space for 5 children to safely move around in, a big screen to see the visuals, and big sound - we need to be able to hear sound effects for it to work. Ideally, it's the sort of event that works well for assemblies or in larger classrooms with an interactive whiteboard.
If you can accommodate that, then this event is for you!
