What is a Creative Writing Workshop in a Dome?
Wonderdome has teamed up with the amazing Sheffield Writing Club to make creative writing fun. Essentially, we use the planetarium shell and the 360 technology to give a spectacular sensory experience. The topic of the show can be fictional and non-fictional. For example, constellation stories and stars, space travel, scientific exploration, the natural world, Earth etc.
Being inside creates an immersive experience during the creative writing workshops. In this unique environment our writing expert guide pupils to develop their creative writing responses. Pupils learn ways into creative writing.
The workshop can be adapted to fit in with particular learning objectives. Creative writing workshops can also be included as a part of:
- Y6 SATs booster writing workshop.
- Gifted and talented or pupil premium development programme.
- Y7 transition programme – provide the opportunity for students to get to know each other better.
This show can be adapted for different ages and groups depending on need. We can also include specific topics to match the subjects your class is working on. The overall aim is to show each person who takes part in a Wonderdome Creative Writing Workshop the inspiration to develop their own imaginative response. The dome creates a magical learning environment to enter into a creative space.
