Play in a Lesson
We can offer a full day’s programme across the whole of your school exploring a theme in the curriculum creatively with your class groups through storytelling, drama, physical theatre, music and movement. The day can culminate in a group sharing at the end of the day. A skilled professional artist will explore with the children either a pre-packaged theme (see below) that links to National Curriculum with up to 35 children for 1 hour (negotiable). Or a theme can be tailor made to link with a topic the school want to look at. The longer the sessions, the more opportunities your pupils will have for activity and discussion. However, this would mean providing fewer class sessions across the day. The minimum length a session can work is 45 minutes and the maximum is 1hr 30 minutes.
Aims of the day
The aim of the days are : (1) To encourage and develop the pupils self-confidence. (2) To provide an immersive and experiential experience of the subject Matter connected to the national curriculum that aid’s learning. (3) To encourage the pupils to explore a theme from a creative perspective and apply their learning beyond the session
