An enthusiastic amateur writer, Sally Spade, is keen to share her love of stories and in particular graphic novels. How do they work? What’s involved? Can anyone create one? With the help of some well-known Superheroes, Sally takes the children on a journey of discovery into the world of storytelling.
This session has been devised to engage and inspire boys, in particular, who may need some encouragement to find the writer within, but works equally well with all children!
During the session the children will:
- Discuss what makes a good story
- Learn how a story can be structured
- Look at characterisation
- Explore story telling through mime
- Create and perform their own version of a super hero tale
Drama Hut have worked with our school on many occasions. Each time, the workshops have been well planned out- with teachers ideas in mind, well executed by very enthusiastic practitioners and have been thoroughly enjoyed by all children! Each workshop has engaged the children enormously, using original ideas that involve the children through practical games and activities. I would recommend this drama company to all schools.
