In your school
For visits to your school, we would secure a Globe Education Practitioner best suited to the learning outcomes you have specified. All of our practitioners have various specialisms, e.g. voice, movement, and we will build the project against the practitioner’s strengths and your requests.
- Read challenging texts with good understanding
- Acquire a wide vocabulary
- Develop a greater appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage
- Develop confidence in the art of speaking and listening
- Use discussion in order to learn: be able to elaborate and explain their understanding and ideas
- Use spoken language to prepare their ideas before they write
Enable all learners to participate in and gain knowledge, skills and understanding associated with drama. Pupils should be able to adopt, create and sustain a range of roles, responding appropriately to others in role.
Using Shakespeare’s stories as a vehicle, our workshops also help to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, and emotional development of pupils.
