Workshops and Assemblies

Magic Dave's unique presentations and lessons are designed with one thing in mind. To teach subjects in a fun and engaging way. Each one of our presentations combines a mixture of educational, psychological and magical principles to teach subjects in new and entertaining ways - making learning fun! ​Below are some brief descriptions of a few of the presentations that we currently offer, but we are always developing more.


If you are looking for inspiration or a lesson on a certain subject then get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. Don't forget you can always download a copy of our Assemblies and Workshop pack here


KS1 Science - Introduction to Experiments/Forces

One of our favourite lessons to do, this introduction to experiments discusses forces and pressure. We start with a dramatic (and completely safe) stunt. One of our instructors lies on a bed of nails and we discuss how this is possible - it's all done by changing the pressure! We then demonstrate to the students what pressure is in relation to forces with some great examples including a giant 6ft balloon, mini rockets and Air-Zookas to demonstrate how forces can be used to do amazing things through high and low pressure.

To finish off this lesson we do a big demonstration where we play with pressure to do the impossible - make a table float using air pressure.

This lesson is exciting and completely safe and every effort is taken to ensure your children will learn a lot, and stay safe!

KS3/4 Online Safety

A tough subject to teach in a fun and engaging way, our experienced instructors have developed an in-depth presentation to cover this tough topic.

This presentation starts by asking the students how safe they think they are online. One student is brought to the stage where they are asked to take out their own mobile phone, go to google and secretly search for an image. After a few seconds and standing nowhere near the student, our presenter says exactly what the student searched for, much to the students disbelief. We continue on looking at how this is done in the real world, demonstrating terms like phishing by using magical skills like cold reading to pretend we know more than we do, or that we are someone we are not.

This lesson is then finished with a demonstration of how fast information spreads on the internet. This lesson is lots of fun and will leave your students with a lasting impression about keeping their information safe on the internet.

Psychology - Memory

Is your memory perfect? Do we really remember everything exactly as it happened or can we be convinced that actually what we remember never actually happened? In this lesson we look at how memory can be manipulated, using psychological misdirection and forces. After this we then look into how we can improve memory, using stunts and tricks used by professional entertainers to remember strings of names/objects as they are written down as well as showing off memorisation skills of books - all done in a fun and entertaining way.

Bespoke Lessons

In the last few paragraphs, we've outlined a few of the lessons that we do in the hope you can see how fun, exciting and educational they are. We are always developing more lessons and are happy to work with you and your staff to develop a lesson on any subject you require. From Road Safety to chemical reactions, mental health and peer pressure to history - the options are unlimited.
