WHAT WE DO
The Play House offers a range of services to help support your work with young people, with a specialism in delivering workshops for Primary School children aged 3-11, spanning from EYFS to KS2. The Play House workshops are a unique way to develop, consolidate and deepen your pupil’s learning.
We want to inspire teachers as well as pupils, which is why, aside from our workshops which demonstrate many teaching strategies and techniques that you can use yourself, we also offer in depth CPD to help develop teachers' confidence in using drama as a teaching method.
One of our latest special projects....
We were lucky enough this year to gain support from Millennium Point Charitable Trust in delivering a special STEAM project 'Daughters of Invention' for KS2 children. We brought the exciting nature of engineering and scientific innovation to life through drama in this unique project, produced in partnership with real engineers from the University of Birmingham.
To find out more, check out this lovely video about the project produced by Millennium Point! Go to Millennium Point's website to learn more about their small grant scheme.

Furthermore, our range of programmes can tackle meaningful questions around British Values, giving young people the opportunity to challenge difficult ideas in a safe environment, in an age appropriate way.

We can also deliver CPDL for teachers working with EYFS to KS2, tailor-made and timed to your requirements, with either individual schools or consortia.
The Play House has extensive experience of providing successful, dynamic professional development in participatory drama for teachers.
Our CPD supports teachers in practically acquiring and improving skills, knowledge and confidence in using drama as an exciting and effective learning medium.
