Project Description

“Some of us have great runways already built for us. If you have one, take off! But if you don’t have one, realize it is your responsibility to grab a shovel and build one for yourself and for those who will follow after you.” Amelia Earhart

Travel back in time with Amelia Earhart who will share her passion for adventure as the first female pilot to fly across the Atlantic ocean. During the workshop the children will also be introduced to Christopher Columbus, Joseph Banks, Nellie Bly and Neil Armstrong, however if you and your class are studying a particular explorer, we will happily include them! During the session the children will:

• Through improvisation, role play and movement, explore what makes an explorer, who they are and why they explore!
• Create a time line of explorers.
• Perform a poem.
• Take part in a short, quick fire quiz

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.
