All the classroom is a stage for teachers and students to enjoy

All the world's a stage so why not make your classroom the stage, your students the actors and let them introduce your Arts curriculum subject.

Each of our Arts curriculum modules has a short play, about 8-10 minutes, to introduce the subject which then moves onto questions and discussion.  Our modules are quick and easy for teachers to use. Fun and interactive for students. They can be used as a complete lesson plan or used with existing resources. 

Have your classroom come alive learning about body language, interviewing people who work in a theatre, using drama to influence a hair colour issue or hot seating an actor to find what they do in theatre.

You don't need any drama or acting skills, just a sense of fun and a desire to try something different.
