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 two hundred schools visited, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
During this workshop the children will meet Margery Horsman, a Maid of Honor in the royal household of King Henry VIII. Being in service throughout Henry’s reign, she is an expert in court etiquette and certainly has a tale or two to tell! Through role play, improvisation and performance-based work, the children will look at a variety of aspects of Tudor life, including, crime and punishment, politics, court life and of course the six wives of Henry VIII!
During this Tudor workshop the children will :
Create images from the period, including a royal banquet, a game of jousting and a gory scene of crime and punishment.
Learn a traditional ‘Pavane’ dance often performed in Henry VIII’s court.
Explore the politics and religious beliefs of the time and how they affected key players during Henry’s reign.
Through performance and poetry, learn about the six wives of Henry VIII.
We cover a wide range of topics from the school curriculum and use drama-based activities to bring the subject to life. Here is a selection of the topics we cover: Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Mayans, Romans, Stone Age, Saxon and Viking, Victorians, WW1, WW2, Great Fire of London and Florence Nightingale. We can also provide bespoke workshops at schools requests.
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, helping to manage tight school budgets.
“We have used The Drama Hut on several occasions to help enrich and inspire the children’s experience of the curriculum. All facilitators have been well prepared and able to use their dramatic skills to deliver well-pitched and interesting workshops. Children are always excited after the session and are able to speak confidently about what they have learnt.”
