Workshop format

Our Explorer Workshops are run by our professionally trained workshop leaders who are fully-trained, working actors. Each session is created around the particular theme or subject you choose. The format varies but in general there will be:

  • A short introduction by the workshop leader, introducing the theme/subject as well as themselves. 
  • A series of ‘ice breaker games’ and a physical warm-up to help the group connect, focus and be physically ready for an exciting adventure.
  • An immersive and imaginative journey through the chosen topic, for example, you might take an imaginary time capsule back in time for a history topic.
  • Improvisation, role play, hot seating and various other drama techniques to deliver information and key facts.
  • Originally written Perform songs or raps that are also great to use within the classroom for follow-up work.
  • A ten question recap and cool down to finish.

 

As always, the children really enjoyed the workshops. They came back to class buzzing about their experiences and the theme - save the word - linked in well with our literacy festival theme.

Glad we were able to fit the workshops in especially as schools had to close at the end of that week.

We always enjoy having the Perform Team in at our school.

Thank you.

The workshops were great and allowed the pupils to show off their drama skills and talents. We were really impressed with Sarah Annakin, our workshop facilitator, and would happily have her back again!
