The Drama Hut
The Drama Hut offers on-site school workshops, encouraging learning in a creative environment. With a wide range of topics to choose from, let us create a unique learning experience for your school.
With the help of the Goddess Isis, during our Egyptian workshop, unravel the secrets hidden in an ancient Egyptian scroll and discover how a Pharaoh would journey to the afterlife.
During the session,the children will:
Create a feel for Ancient Egypt, making pictures with our fast paced 10 second picture game.
Meet ‘Isis’ an Egyptian Goddess and learn about her story and beliefs.
Help to prepare an ancient tomb, for the journey to the afterlife.
Create and perform a chant and complete a ritual to secure the Pharaoh’s passage into the afterlife.
“Thank you very much for delivering such a fantastic drama session which enabled the children to develop their understanding and enthusiasm for Ancient Egypt. You took us all on a very exciting journey to learn about many aspects of Ancient Egyptian history and did so in a truly creative and imaginative way”.
Marie Hedges Head of Year 3 Orleans Primary School
Why are The Drama Hut a great choice for bringing fun workshops into your school?
We believe that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created in order to provide a service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life. Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.
All our team are trained both in facilitation and performance. They have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion through learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
With over one hundred schools visited, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
What activities are available during group visits?
We offer a wide range of topics to choose from as well as bespoke workshops following consultation with schools. These include: Ancient Greeks, Mayans, Anglo Saxon and Viking, Stone Age, Victorians, Tudors, Florence Nightingale, Great Fire of London, Romans, WW1 and WW2
What size groups do you cater for?
We can work with up to 30 children at any one time for a minimum of 60 minutes. We offer special day rates for multiple classes and can deliver two different topics to different year groups on the same day to help manage costs for schools.
Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?
As we visit you on-site, all we require in the school hall or similar to work in and the presence of at least one member of staff to observe the session/s.
Is there first aid on site?
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

"Every drama activity was carefully planned and chosen to teach the children new information about the Egyptians. Anna engaged the children and the children really responded well to her approach. At point I left the room for 5 minutes and came back to everyone singing, chanting and doing actions to a song they had just learned using all the names of the Egyptian Gods, which was great to see! Thank you!"

"Lillie was so professional and truly captured each child’s interest. Even the ‘too cool’ kids we’re fully engaged and enjoyed every second. The content was fantastic to begin out topic and the children have remembered a lot and applied it to their further learning. All of the children have wrote a letter to express their enjoyment and appreciation for their workshop. I would fully recommend! Thank you"
