'World Book Day' with The Drama Hut
With the help of the well-known and much loved writer Roald Dahl, 'Sally Spade' will take the children on a journey of discovery and storytelling with this highly interactive workshop. Together the children will in groups, discuss the stories of Roald Dahl and what makes them so memorable, create pictures from individual stories, learn how a story is structured, look at characterisation, learn a song and create and perform their own version of one of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes- perfect for World Book Day. Please note we have other creative writing workshops all suitable for this event.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
Curriculum topics available: Story writing, Creative writing, Story telling.
The Drama Hut's Creative Writing workshop offers an opportunity for children to learn through improvisation, role play, song and script work creating a unique learning experience for your class or year group. We will look at the way a story is structured and explore some of the 500 words Roald Dahl invented himself!
Our workshops include tailored, fully interactive, drama games, role play, teamwork exercises, songs, movement and more, led by a professional costumed actor.
What size groups do you cater for?
We typically run 60-120 minute workshops with up to 30 children at any one time and can offer special day rates for multiple classes. We are also able to provide two different topics on the same day for different year groups.
How does safeguarding work for online workshops?
Online sessions are jointly hosted by the teacher and our actor and may or may not be recorded, depending on the preference of the school. Ideally workshops take place in a school hall with a large screen, however, they can also work extremely well in a classroom, with desks pushed aside. Our Risk Assessment document is available upon request and is updated regularly to comply with all current advice and guidelines.
What technology/devices/type of internet connection do schools need for an online workshop?
Online workshops are delivered live by professional actors and typically last 60-75 minutes each. They are structured in the same way as an on-site visit and have the advantage of utilising the benefits of technology – in particular, virtual backgrounds, enabling actors to transport children back in time, to any era or location. School will require a good internet connection and ideally a large screen to project our actor on to, so all the children have good visibility.
Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?
Yes - the very nature of our workshops being so visual and experiential, has led to extremely positive feedback from teachers.
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
Yes - children with special educational needs really benefit and enjoy our workshops.
Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools.
