We work in collaboration with Derbyshire County Council to develop an exciting environmental education theatre programme.
‘The Waste Watchers’ raises waste awareness and encourages Year 8 pupils to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste at school and at home. The performance and follow-on workshops compliment a number of National Curriculum areas. Most specifically, Geography, Citizenship, and PSHE. The programme consists of 2 main elements;
Performance (50 minutes)
Follow on workshop (1 lesson long)
