Saving the Day Invention Workshop for KS1

This STEM Workshop is perfect to get your KS1 pupils working collaboratively and thinking creatively with hands-on invention and design activities.

Pupils start by learning about inventions and specifically how inventions solve problems. We take part in an invention challenge to save the day of a character from a fairy tale and end in a practical engineering challenge. 

"The workshop was great fun, pitched correctly and really easy to manage with the resource list provided. My class loved it!"

The practical engineering challenge at the end could be done as part of the workshop or used to extend the learning on another day if you prefer, using any junk modelling resources or craft sticks and tape.

The workshop will take around 60-90 minutes in total, though it can be made to last longer.

For just £99* you can use the workshop with as many KS1 classes as you like for a whole school term on your own schedule.

Please be aware that for this workshop you will need to source some simple materials in advance such as A3 paper, pencils and junk modelling materials like straws and craft sticks. We estimate the total materials costs for running this workshop with one class of 30 pupils would be £10-£15 with each additional class costing less than this.

You can see the full list of materials for this workshop here.

* Discounts are available when purchasing more than one workshop at the same time, for small schools or when you will use the workshop with a single class.

Take a quick look at a sample of the video lesson to get an idea of the way the teacher-facilitated workshops look and feel for you and your class.

Part 1 Saving the Day - KS1 Workshop

The workshop is broken down into two parts with two shorter videos. 

You can use these across separate days, separate lessons or go straight from one to the other. They are designed to flow on from one to the other, but you might want your pupils to take a break in the middle.

Part 2 Saving the Day - KS1 Workshop

This is the second part of the workshop, designed to be completed after Part 1.
