He's behind you! Pantomime workshops

Key Stage 1

Explore the magical narrative of some of pantomime's most famous stories. From Jack & the Beanstalk to Aladdin, or Cinderella and Peter Pan, we've got lots of favourites to choose from - just let us know if you have a particular favourite you'd like us to cover!

Through the workshop, the children will:

  • Bring the stories to life through role-play and improvisation
  • Practise confident solo speaking
  • Sing a fun and upbeat pantomime-style song

The children really enjoyed the sessions. I wasn't sure how it would work online, but Rachel held their attention extremely well. She was calm and clear with her instructions and made sure that everyone had a chance to speak. They were all involved and joined in with the activities and said that was the best time ever.

– Mrs K Thurston

The children enjoyed all of the activities, particularly using their imaginations to act out the story of The Snail and the Whale. They loved learning about opposites and teamwork, and used their listening skills to recreate freeze frames. 

– Miss J Smith

Hannah is always full of energy and fully engages the children.

– Ms. T Marquand

Hannah was, as always, engaging, enthusiastic and informative. What a wonderful way to kick-start our pupil's learning about Florence Nightingale!

Thank you!

– Mr M Lavery

Holly was absolutely amazing carrying out Healthy Me' workshop. She engaged the classes and questioned them on their knowledge learnt so far. The children had such fun and learnt a great rap!

– Ms. S Parish

The children learnt a lot and enjoyed it too. I liked the way the leader went through events first and then broke them down in detail and then the children acted it out. Great behaviour management too.

– Mrs G Hewitt

Please pass on our thanks to India for working hard with all the classes. She was very enthusiastic and the children all enjoyed participating. She observed social distancing and I would be happy to recommend.

– Ms. L Downes

Children were engaged and interested throughout - Hannah gave clear instructions and guidance to inspire the pupils, there was a real buzz in school afterwards!

– Ms. F Sinsbury

Katie was fantastic. Even over Zoom. She really brought the topic to life. The children in class loved it and I could see the children at home were enjoying themselves too.

– Mr D Parris

We thought Bethany delivered an excellent workshop on anti bullying. It was relevant to the age of the children and explained well about what bullying is (and isn't) and made good links to the worries they have with friends on the playground.

Thank you very much!

– Mrs J Pipe
