Dramatic Progress understands that sometimes teaching isn't enough, your students can look at you with a sense of "do you really know?" or their learning and development is restricted by time, assessments and other constant factors.
With Teaching and workshop experience across the age and ability range, Dramatic Progress uses Drama as the foundation for development. From teaching in nurseries and schools we have a variety of tried and tested programmes and workshops.
"An absolutely phenomenal day. The Children were completely engaged throughout the sessions and we had the workshops for a whole week. Absolutely fantastic, Thank you." Tonje Bjornas
All our workshops aim to take your students’ learning beyond the boundaries of the classroom. All our workshops can be catered to half day, full day or carousel sessions.
Early Years and Nursery
Early Years Foundation stage is obviously an extremely important time for children to develop and the most common way children learn at this stage is through play. On a day to day basis children role play a variety of scenarios. So what better way to develop and engage your children than through drama?
Working with groups for up to an hour these sessions are dedicated to using drama to develop the 5 Cs:
