The Play House uses participatory theatre and drama to stimulate the language and learning of children and young people. Our programmes cover subjects across the whole curriculum including literacy, numeracy, history and science as well as spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of learning (SMSC) such as citizenship.
We always work with one class at a time to ensure meaningful participation for each and every child. Participants enter into rich fictional worlds and interact with a range of situations and characters, solving problems and moral dilemmas along the way.
All our touring programmes include a teacher preview to enable integration of the programme into schemes of work and comprehensive online resources with lots of ideas and activities for follow up work in class.
As well as linking to specific curriculum areas, our work supports other aspects of learning such as Speaking & Listening, using drama to enrich use of language and encourage active listening.
