At the Drama Hut, we believe that children should have ready access to drama in order to support learning. The Drama Hut was created to provide an affordable service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life out of the classroom . Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.
With over two hundred schools visited last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
All our team are professional actors, trained by us to help facilitate learning through performance. They all have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion of learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
The Drama Hut's Creative Writing workshops offer an opportunity for children to learn through improvisation, role play, song and script work. Let us create a unique learning experience for your school and bring writing stories to life with our experienced actor who will take them on a journey of discovery!
Curriculum topics available: Creative writing, Story writing.
In this workshop our professional actor will take on the role of enthusiastic writer, Sally Spade, who is keen to share her love of his stories; With the help of the well-known and much loved writer Roald Dahl, she takes the children on a journey of discovery of storytelling with this highly interactive workshop. Together the children will In groups, create pictures from individual stories, learn how a story is structured, look at characterisation, learn a song and create and perform their own version of one of Roald Dahl’s revolting Rhymes
Workshop topics 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
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.
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.
“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.”
