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 am so grateful to Rhia for her excellent work. I had a positive call from my daughter's teacher, who had noticed her new found confidence since starting Perform.

The staff are always welcoming and friendly and really put the kids at ease. Kady is very pleased to be back and is always full of stories after the classes.

I think Matthew is absolutely brilliant. Ava is only 4 and has slotted in seamlessly into his class. The time and effort he puts in is amazing (and both my husband and I could relate to this being teachers ourselves). Ava loves it and thanks so much for all you do!

– Mrs Anna Gale

The teachers are absolutely brilliant

I've been extremely impressed by the personal interest in each child and the quality of the content. Stella has already grown in confidence in just 4 weeks.

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.

– Mrs Lida Charsouli

I think it's really professionally run and I love the communication with parents - I really feel as though I know what's going on in the classes. Most importantly of all, my daughter ADORES her classes and wants to do them every day! Could not be happier.

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

Brilliant class! My daughter throughly enjoys attending every week. Charlotte is so warm and welcoming - a credit to your team.

– Mrs Michelle Williams

Andrew is amazing! My twins have only attended a few sessions and look forward to going every Wednesday.
