We offer inset for nursery workers, primary school teachers/TAs, Museum staff/educators & universities looking at how to use drama creatively to inspire learning both inside & outside the classroom.
Our inset training is designed to give teachers confidence in using creative approaches to the curriculum through drama, story-telling and the use of intelligent materials. Insets can be adapted to target learning for Early Years Foundation, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Foundation stage / Key stage 1 focuses on using stories and age appropriate props/materials to develop imaginative and sensory play that can link in to topic areas.
Key Stage 2 focuses on creative approaches to the curriculum and opportunities for learning across the different subject areas.
All the inset training is designed to meet learning goals across subjects:-
- Inspire knowledge and understanding of the world
- Communication, Language and.Literacy

The company’s use of intelligent materials and tactile approaches to drama ensure that all staff will have a memorable and fun filled day and will leave participants positively bursting with ideas to try out with their children.
“Now I really want to try and include drama in my cross curricular planning as much as possible as it is so valuable.” – Emma Spencer, Stallingborough Primary

It took me totally out of my comfort zone but gave me so many ideas and revitalised the way I think about story telling with young children. I loved creating different worlds and have put this into classroom practice which all children enjoy and I also think more about photographing children to capture their concentration and engagement.
