Being involved in drama activities encourages creative thinking, problem solving skills and working as a team to achieve a shared goal. At the same time, they are developing their self-confidence, communication, co-operation, negotiation and leadership skills in a fun and engaging manner. All these skills can then be applied in all areas of learning. Drama can support speaking and listening, extending vocabulary, encouraging students to express opinions and motivates their extended writing.
We have teamed up with Mind Matters for Education to create the following theatre performances/ workshops for primary school children:
The two performances, aimed at KS1/KS2 focus on promoting well-being and helping children to manage anxiety and express/ communicate their feelings. The workshop explores strategies for helping young people identify and talk about their feelings and consider ways to manage feelings through dramatic techniques and devices. Our aims are:
1.To help children recognise and validate their emotions,
2. Explain how it is okay to feel anxious
3. Recognise that things are changeable and the way they feel will alter.
‘The Society of Super You’
An interactive ‘in role’ experience where the children and young people will meet and work with ‘super agents’ to become part of this positive special society! This workshop is suitable for KS2 children or lower KS3 young people and is a one-day project or series of six one-hour workshops. Our aims are:
1. Develop self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to present/perform.
2. Develop group skills of communication, awareness of others and feelings, awareness of self.
3. Develop drama skills; vocal and physical.
4. Unlock their personal potential, while having fun.
Drama gives children opportunities to reflect on difficult issues, using dramatic techniques to discuss, explore and allowing them to express their thoughts/feelings/emotions in a supportive environment. Please email or speak to Beccy to discuss your specific needs/ requirements.
