'Elizabethans' with The Drama Hut
Meet Margaret Russell, a Maid of Honour in the court of Queen Elizabeth I, whilst we explore her reign and the legacy of the Golden Age of Exploration! We will have the opportunity to create tableaus of events from this fascinating period, discover how Elizabethan society and its hierarchical system was organised and meet significant figures, including the influential Sir Walter Raleigh. We will also create a timeline placing The Elizabethans in historical context, linking them to the modern day and our current Queen, Elizabeth II and learn a traditional Elizabethan circle dance.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
Our workshops include tailored, fully interactive, drama games, role play, teamwork exercises, songs, movement and more, led by a professional costumed actor.
Led by our Professional Actor, the children will be able to explore 'all things Elizabethan' whilst learning about this phenomenal Queen’s reign and the legacy of the Golden Age of Exploration during this workshop.
Explorers including Sir Walter Raleigh will be included in this workshop which celebrates 'The Golden Age of Exploration'!
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.
"Thank you so much to Drama Hut for an amazing experience. The actor truly had the children in the palm of her hands, they were so engaged and had the best time. They spoke about it for the rest of the day, it really helped to bring their learning to life! The actor was brilliant – so kind, friendly and amazing with the children!”
