Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

What will you learn on this course?

Will you be Persephone, trapped in Hades until Demeter can save you? Or perhaps you prefer the tale of Baldur and Hodur, brothers representing light and dark, who got the short end of the stick when dealing with Loki, the Master of Mischief?

In this one-day drama workshop children will delve into Greek and Norse mythologies! They will learn how the Ancient Greeks created theatre, while bringing to life an imaginative array of mythical characters and stories from different culture.

During this workshop, children will learn about drama through fun games and exercises that will introduce them to different performance skills and will enable the children to develop their confidence, creativity, group work, speaking, listening and performance and presentation skills.
