PRIMARY, SECONDARY, POST-16 & SEN OFFERS Dates are flexible for booking in-school across the year, but schools must ensure booking well in advance. Dates, Location & Format The in-school performance is 25 minutes in duration, with the potential for a 20-30 minute Q&A session with the actors. Additional workshops can be anything from 50 minutes to 2.5 hours. The learning outcomes for this project are varied and can be tailored depending on the focus of the workshop. The story of Yarico can be related to the English, Drama, Citizenship, History, PSHE and Religious Education Curriculum. For students, the project will: Learning Outcomes • Provide an experience of a live theatre performance. • Increase awareness of SMSC and British Values relating to Citizenship, PSHE and Religious Studies • Raise awareness of issues surrounding modern enslavement and women’s emancipation • Cover performance and verbal skills related to the spoken language aspect of the English National Curriculum for KS1-4 • Build on transferable skills related to taking part in a drama workshop such as, communication, speaking and listening, working in a team and building confidence • Offer an introduction to drama and storytelling or a more in-depth exploration of specific drama and devising skills including mask work on a basic, intermediate or advanced level. This can easily be related to the Drama and Theatre Studies curriculum in KS4 or KS5 For teachers, the project can support them to engage with Drama in a simple way in their classrooms and provide creative solutions to enabling discussions on SMSC topics such as identity, religion and race. We would need an initial planning consultation with each teacher to determine the best times and arrangements for performances and workshops and the specific targets and aims for each workshop. This can be done over the phone. Teacher Commitment & Training We would need a teacher to be present at every workshop and enough teachers present at a performance to chaperone the number of students. We expect teachers to be engaged in the workshops with the participants. This will be an opportunity to see our process in practice and learn from a Trestle specialist. 54
