The most recent addition to our Primary School range of workshops has been a highly successful series of activities linked to the theme of Giants. Youngsters explore through drama such stories as Roald Dahl’s “The BFG”, Ted Hughes’ “The Iron Man” and the ever-popular “Jack and The Beanstalk”. Working in pairs and groups with adult actors, pupils use mime, improvisation and textual references to enact scenes from the stories, to move and speak as giants and to imagine what it is like to be a giant in the human world. The workshop runs for six weeks with two hour sessions per week and all participating pupils receive a certificate at the end.
