Creative Writing-Engage and Inspire’–Roald Dahl
School Workshops - The Drama Hut
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.
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).
Why book The Drama Hut for educational workshops into your school?
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! The workshops will include:
Discussing the stories of Roald Dahl,
Creating pictures from individual stories
Learning how a story is structured, looking at characterisation and learning a song
Creating and performing their own version of one of Roald Dahl’s revolting Rhymes
What activities are available during group visits?
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.
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, helping to manage tight school budgets.
Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?
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.
Is there first aid on site?
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
“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.”
