ANTI-BULLYING DRAMA WORKSHOPS

If you are searching for anti-bullying ideas, our Anti-Bullying drama day can be a fantastic way to enthuse and engage the whole school in tackling bullying.  Whether you choose Learn and Present or Explore, the day will get children thinking about what it means to be a friend, why it’s important to value difference and how we can treat each other with respect.

This interactive and exciting day allows children to really think about what bullying means to them and to your school. To discuss ideas for your school anti-bullying work, give us a call today.

You can now choose from 2 exciting options, based on the number of pupils in your cohort and what you’d like to achieve:

LEARN AND PRESENT:

Based on the always popular Play in a Day format, a Learn and Present day is a fun and participatory day which challenges and inspires your pupils. Children spend a full day with one of our talented practitioners who is an expert in drama in education.  Across the day, children take part in drama activities, play games, sing songs, and have loads of fun.  They spend time talking about what bullying looks and feels like and how we can prevent it from happening in school, online and at home.

As they work, they create scenes which link together to become a performance at the end of the school day.  Once all of the hard work is done, the class present their performance with music, costumes and props to an invited audience of parents and the rest of the school.  This ensures that the message is felt across school and gives the class a real focus – they are now anti-bullying champions for the whole school!

EXPLORE:

The Explore format is perfect for larger schools as it gives you between 4 and 6 workshops in one school day.  Each class works on the theme of Anti-Bullying, exploring what bullying means, how we know whether we’re being bullied and what we can do to stop it and prevent it.

Each workshop is tailored to the year group and offers a chance for useful discussion and debate about the topic. And because we deliver each session through drama activities, games and songs – children have fun, feel comfortable working on such a difficult topic and really engage with the theme.
