Florence Nightingale Workshop
School Workshops - The Drama Hut
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.
With over two hundred schools visited last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.
Why book The Drama Hut's Florence Nightingale Workshop workshop for your school?
All our team are 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).
All we require prior to our visit is a clear space to work in and a member of staff to observe or join in the experience. In addition to this we are now able to offer live online workshops to schools out of our geographical reach.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
During this workshop, our professional actor will take on the role of the famous Lady with the Lamp and help the children learn about her life during Victorian times and in particular the impact she had on nursing and the sanitisation of our hospitals. During this workshop, through role play, improvisation and drama games the children will travel back in time to the Satari hospital during the Crimean War and experience the difficult environment at the time, by creating pictures and tableaus. They will have the opportunity to ‘Hot Seat’ Florence to understand more about her life from early childhood, through to her valuable work during the Crimean War and beyond. Become the wounded soldiers and nurses and create their own stories to share with each other. To finish, in small groups, they will act out the story of Florence, using a child’s poem for inspiration.
What activities are available during this educational workshop?
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
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. 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.
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
Yes we do and find our sessions to work particularly well with SEN children
We are also able to adapt this workshop to include or be specific to Mary Seacole, particularly popular for Black History Week.
“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.”
