Half a day/Full day available
Dressing up and creating dramas that resonate with all age groups is what we enjoy the most! Simple yet effective props are used to accentuate well known and new tales for your pupils to contribute to. Why not recommend a familiar text to be adapted into a 60 minute workshop where pupils have the opportunity to delve deep into their imaginations and produce their very own mini performance.(20 children per workshop maximum.)
Popular tales including The Leopards Drum and Anansi the Spider-man can be performed for your pupils. Alternatively, please suggest your favourite text for us to consider adapting into a short interactive performance for your students to watch and enjoy.
Interactive Storytelling Sessions
Interactive story telling involves the audience with drama, questions and music encapsulating your pupils within a moral tale. These sessions are increasingly popular with Key Stage 1 with stories such as The Blue Coat and The King of the Fishes.
Stranger Danger Awareness
Inspired by the play Mouth Almighty, this hour long workshop focuses on the key issue of strangers. In small groups the children partake in activities including characterisation of the key characters, drama games and improvisation all to reiterate the message of awareness and personal safety.
Author Visits/Special Assemblies
A wonderful opportunity for pupils to get to know a real and local author! The session with Salihah Agbaje will be packed with discussion and questions on what it takes to become an author, what makes a good villain and excerpts from the play Mouth Almighty.
Sometimes a fresh pair eyes can help to highlight the areas that need improvement. Here at SWP, we provide the best guidance for educational establishments to enhance and deliver a diverse and inclusive literacy collective.
Performance plays a huge role in aiding the delivery and development of expression in youth. That is why we use performance and song to reach out and educate young people. We believe our workshops are the ideal forum for participants to respond to the social and ethical issues we base performances upon.
We hope to bring to your establishment the inspiration to invigorate with dramatic arts, revive the imaginations of your pupils and remind them that learning how to make informed and logical decisions independently can be fun.
