Introduce your youngest pupils to theatre & performance
This innovative learning programme invites Year 1 pupils to take an active role in a unique storytelling performance at the National Theatre. During the first half of the summer term 2017, classes will work with professional theatre artists who will introduce and explore different aspects of theatre in performance. At the end of the project the children will be invited to take part in an interactive storytelling performance at the National Theatre incorporating their work.
The children were thrilled to go into a National Theatre and be involved with the performance. Having parents coming along was great too, as the children felt really special…. taking part in a real performance alongside real actors has deepened their understanding of what is involved as well as increased their confidence, and provided unforgettable experience.

It has given me the confidence to be more ambitious with music and movements rather than relying on words to tell a story or create a scene. I will definitely bear this in mind when putting together class assemblies and productions at school. Year 1 teacher
