At The Drama Hut, we believe that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created in order to provide affordable on -site history workshops 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 we require on the day is the school hall or similar to work in and a member of staff to observe the session/s.
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 last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
Travel back in time with our professional actor, ‘Polly’ to 1944, just after the D Day Landings and experience what it might have been like to be an evacuee during World War II. Pack your suitcase and get ready to leave your hometown for the country, but unexpectedly end up in London in the middle of an air raid. During the session the children will, create images of life during The Blitz, learn about the need for rationing at the time, learn about songs sung and the importance of keeping spirits up during this difficult time and explore what it was like to be an evacuee and move to the country.
Through improvisation, role play and work with text and song we bring curriculum topics to life. Topics covered include: Anglo Saxons/Vikings I Creative Writing I Egyptians I Greeks I Florence Nightingale I Great Explorers I Mary Seacole I Great Fire of London I Mayans I Romans I Stone Age I Suffragettes I Tudors I Victorians I WW1 I WW2 I World Book Day
Up to 30 children at a time
“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
"The children learnt so much from the workshops and have not stopped talking about "Polly " and being evacuees. Thank you for making the day a huge success."
Trudi - whole school event St Ethelberts Catholic Primary School
"It was a fantastic workshop which thoroughly engaged our cohort. Some disengaged boys were hooked by the experience and produced some incredible work on the back of it."
Lucy, Year 5 Manorfield Primary
"The children were engaged in their learning from start to finish.
They participated really well and Anna was brilliant at bringing all the different characters to life.
I would highly recommend these workshops to all year 3, 4 and year 2 children. Thank you so much!"
