All of our workshops are available online and can be live streamed into classrooms, halls and homes. COVID related cancellations are available at short notice as long as workshops can be rescheduled for later in the year.
All our team are professional actors, trained both in facilitation and performance. They have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion for learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
With over two hundred schools visited last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
Curriculum topics available: Stone Age.
Travel back in time with our professional actor who takes on the role of enthusiastic archaeologist Sally Spade, in order to explore this fascinating prehistoric period, discovering how it developed from the chaotic to the domestic. During the session, the children will create a timeline in order to get a sense of the start, middle and end of this period. In pairs they will explore and vocalise how stone age people may have communicated with one another. Through a Stone Age ‘Dragons Den’, they will explore what would have been a useful invention of the time and through guided improvisation and poetry, the children will imagine life in a stone age settlement.
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 different topics to different year groups on the same day, helping to manage tight school budgets.
All we require on the day is the school hall or similar to work in and a member of staff to observe the session/s.
Yes, with the assistance of staff on-site where.
“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.”
Marie Hedges, Orleans Primary School, Middlesex
At The Drama Hut, we believe that schools should have ready access to affordable drama workshops 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.
"Lillie was wonderful at delivering the workshop. The children learned a lot about the Stone Age in a really interactive way. She was really engaging as 'Sally Spade', and kept their attention for the full 75 minutes."
Leanne, Year 3 Issac Newton School
"The boys had a really brilliant afternoon and they all loved it. They had had a really tough day and not been outside as usual and Fraser was able to keep them all engaged and involved throughout the sessions. It was brilliant to see them working together in groups and I was so impressed with the creativity Fraser brought out of them. Thank you!"
Antonia, Year 2 teacher Wetherby, Kensington
"Testimonial - We had a brilliant day with Sally Spade, the archeologist! The children were very enthusiastic during the workshop and it gave them inspiration to do some fantastic writing after!"
Lorraine Newlands Primary School
"The workshop was fantastic! The children were so engaged in their learning throughout and took so much away from it. Sally Spade was so engaging that the children were in awe of her. Not only that but Sally Spade even made it through the snow to run our workshop!"
