Reading and writing

Perform can boost reading and writing skills

Research shows that children who participate in drama, dance and singing have better reading and writing skills.

This may be because they have learnt to create images in their minds while reading or developed their imagination thereby improving their creative writing. Whatever the reason, drama is now seen as essential in teaching literacy skills and giving children a lasting love of books and language.

And it's not just literacy. A study by the National Theatre showed children with experience of drama workshops scored higher in Maths SATS as well. So regular Perform classes could make a big difference to your child's performance at school.

I have been so impressed with Katie since our first lesson - she instills such confidence in parents while instantly building rapport with the kids. Jude certainly enjoys the classes and is keen to go each week. It's a safe, welcoming environment.

Clearly contact with parents is built into the Perform structure, but Melissa's kindness and enthusiasm has been amazing. Melissa has been so helpful, offering great advice and being on hand to reassure Viva (and me!). I could not have asked for a better response

It seems extremely well organised and professionally run but also lots of fun at the same time!

You all are doing a great job and Ava absolutely LOVES her weekly classes with you. She has blossomed even after only a few classes and her experience with you is opening her mind to future career interests in theatre, which is so fun to observe! Thank you for all you do, keep up the great work.

Suzie was absolutely brilliant at reassuring us that our little one would be in good, caring hands. She clearly really cares about each of the children and had some masterful techniques to put my little one at ease. She was the reason we initially chose Perform along with the quality and content of the class teaching.

Our boy can't wait to go to his class every week, he loves it! Sarah, the producer, is very good at communicating what's going on and making everyone feel welcome and included.

Kathryn is really enthusiastic and also totally in control of a bunch of very energetic kids . Leo really loves his Monday classes. Extremely impressed with the whole thing.

Bebe-Rose absolutely loves her Perform sessions! We love using the app to practice the songs and she enjoys the games on there too. I'm really impressed by the techniques used to get the children to follow direction and demonstrate that they had learnt the songs - clever teaching!

The girls love the classes, I think Sam puts a fantastic class together, the energy is infectious!
