Project Description

Sally Spade, an enthusiastic archaeologist, has been tasked with writing an article for “History Today”. Guided by Sally, through movement, improvisation, role play and poetry, the children are invited to travel back in time, in order to explore this fascinating prehistoric period, discovering how it developed from the chaotic to the domestic.

  • The children will create pictures from ‘The Stone Age’ in order to get a sense of the start, middle and end of this period. (early, middle and late).
  • In pairs the children will explore and vocalise how stone age people may have communicated with one another.
  • Using pictures for inspiration, the children will create a Stone Age timeline.
  • Through Stone Age ‘Dragons Den’, what would have been a useful invention of the time?
  • Through guided improvisation and poetry, the children imagine life in a stone age settlement.
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.

The facilitator was very well prepared and had clearly researched the subject widely.  She was enthusiastic and engaging- it was an excellent overview of the prehistoric period.

The workshop was fantastic! The children were so engaged in their learning throughout and took so much away from it. Sally Spade was so engaging that the children were in awe of her. Not only that but Sally Spade even made it through the snow to run our workshop!

The children and teachers had the most amazing time with Lillie. It was an absolutely delightful way to introduce our new topic to the children.
