The Drama Hut brings topics to life, both supporting and enriching learning, for primary aged children. In recent years we have seen a change in the curriculum that is seeking to reflect and discuss the wider multicultural society we live in, it’s history and its impact. As a company we welcome and embrace this positive shift and have responded by developing and delivering a series of new workshops and adapting existing ones including our latest Windrush topic.
Specific aims set out by The Department of Education in 2023
“We want all pupils to benefit from a high quality and diverse history curriculum. Although Black History Month only happens once a year, the curriculum supports children learning about it all year round. One of the key aims of the history curriculum is to know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day. This includes how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world, which helps build an understanding of a shared British and world history.”
It is encouraging to see that the celebration and teaching of important lives and events are no longer constrained to set days and months and we are thrilled that workshops we offer, such as The Suffragettes, Mary Seacole, Rosa Parks, British Values and Windrush, are being booked all year round.
