Drama Club with Mrs Roberts
Every Thursday, children are invited to put their own characters aside and get to explore and pretend to someone completely different. The aim of Drama Club is for the children to not only have fun, but to open and reveal new talents that they probably didn’t know they had before.
With help from Miss Roberts and my self, we hope that we can encourage and inspire confidence in our children, not just in Drama Club but in all aspects of their lives, something which will really benefit them both in the short term and long term, a magical dose of confidence and reassurance.
Our current production of ‘A Modern Christmas Carol’, is under way and we hope that our children will be supported and seen for the amazing little talents that they are. With our help we can help unlock their barriers and instil positivity and hope that you will see a side to them that has never been before.
