Education > Primary Schools
|SUPPORT FOR PRIMARY SCHOOLS|
|We aim to support all primary schools in the West Midlands area and beyond, with the provision of educational related activities which will enhance and augment the school curriculum. We can do this in a number of ways tailored to each school’s own particular needs.|
These can take the form of:
Bespoke non-show related workshops
Show related workshops
Musical Theatre , Dance , Drama, Singing Workshops
We can apply such subjects as: Science; Design and Technology; Literacy and Numeracy; Art and History and of course Dance and Drama, to all aspects of theatre and theatrical productions for all age ranges from Foundation to Keystage 2 plus a range of cross curriculum activities.
“Many Thanks to Liz and her team for another exciting visit to the Hippodrome. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring “behind the scenes” and gained a great deal from the activities. They particularly liked having a real ticket and finding their own seat in the auditorium and acting out their stage name on stage. This experience had provided a wealth of work for their leaning journey “Show Time”. We do hope we can visit again next year.” - Anne Henson

Teachers! Feel the need for inspiration? ...a little isolated? ...at the end of your creative tether?
The sessions run late afternoon on weekdays and are open to teachers from primary, secondary and special schools. You will also be given the opportunity to stay and watch that evening’s production at a discounted price whenever possible.
Next meeting: Wednesday 8 October 4.30-6pm
