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.

Sam is a brilliant teacher she’s really engages the children and they have fun

Sian has been absolutely brilliant with Bebe Star. She was initially very nervous but Sian showed patience and kindness that went beyond her working hours. For that I am grateful.

Lucy is great. Full of enthusiasm and a desire to please both children and parents alike.

– Mrs Lucy O'Neil

I love how well organised and well run that the class is. The teachers are great and the kids love the class. I'm very happy.

Francesca has been really nervous about attending classes in the past but she loves her time at Perform with Lizzie and Tia.

– Mrs Lindsay Powell

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!

– Ms Francesca Canueto

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.

In a nutshell Molly simply can't wait for Monday's to come round again after each class. As a quiet highly sensitive girl who struggles with performing Molly has taken to Karen and Holly's infectious energy and comes out the session buzzing!! It's a revelation!!!! Loving doing the dance routines with her too!!

– Ms Lucy Thomas

Thank you for making Antonia’s Friday afternoons so special! She absolutely love coming and joining the fun with Emily and Becky!

– Mrs Alina Ghiurco

Minnie and Trixie absolutely love their Perform class. Their teacher Matthew is incredible and really seems to ‘get’ them as individuals. I walk away leaving them for an hour, knowing that they are having fun, are safe and cared for and learning lifelong skills. It’s a good feeling.
