Planet Reporter


This workshop is particularly suitable for KS3 and upwards. It allows children the opportunity to develop their creative writing skills by becoming a "Space Reporter" for Space Detectives' own publication - "The Daily Earth."
Entitled "Evacuation Earth" and following a fictional catastrophic space event, children are asked to consider how they would implement an evacuation of humanity from Earth. We look at logistics and the options in Space open to us. We also briefly touch on the emotions and human behavioural traits that this sort of situation may highlight and bring to the fore.
The workshop concludes by the individual design of a front page newspaper spread, using the information gained, both in writing and picture format.

Suitable for KS3

Available as a Mini Workshop Only.

Prices start from £50
