Schools: Storytelling through drama

Drama is a vital part of a child’s education, developing listening and communication skills, teamwork, empathy and trust. It ignites spontaneity, improves lateral thinking and encourages creativity. Even in young children, drama and improvisation can help to develop self-awareness and self-confidence while increasing critical and creative problem solving skills.

Our 1-hour STORY KITCHEN workshop offers a series of games and exercises devised to suit each age group and developmental stage. We offer a workshop suitable for primary school children Years 1-6 that can be tailored to the particular needs of the group, theme or topic.

The workshop focuses on communication, listening and teamwork and development of storytelling and literacy skills. As well as storytelling through spoken word, children are encouraged to explore narrative with their bodies and faces in exercises that focus on physical expression and self-discovery.

As an experienced improviser, in-school drama coach and qualified Montessori teacher, Faye will work with the class teacher to ensure that the children and have a memorable, educational and fun experience.  For more information or to set up a meeting to discuss your requirements, please get in touch.

“Thank you so much for coming in on Friday to do the drama workshop! The children (and staff too!) really enjoyed it. We would happily recommend you to other schools and re-book you in the future.” Teacher, Prospect House School.
