Workshops for Children with Special Educational Needs
We all learn in different ways! Our workshops help those who are sensory seekers to explore subjects through performance and interaction.
We use our unique brand of storytelling, music, puppetry, and sensory props to bring the chosen subject to life. Our workshops are designed for SEND schools and mainstream schools with SEN provision, but are open to all.
The sessions are adaptable to different ages ranging from KS1-KS4, and we deliver content suitable for ALL abilities.
Whatever the subject matter, we aim to make every session interactive, engaging and fun!
Embracing Arts Workshops are
- Child led, an organic approach and guided by the participants' responses.
- Accessible for all children, and embracing of their health or educational needs
- Suitable for children in KS1-KS4.
- Designed by actor-facilitators with over 20 years' experience of delivering schools' workshops in specialist schools.
- Multi-sensory and interactive.
- Inspired by a passion for delivering educational content through theatrical experiences which are accessible for all.
- Improve communication, self-expression and engagement.
“There are no words to say how much the pupils at St Nicholas School benefit from the Embracing Arts sessions. The sessions have... been so successful with their bag of techniques, strategies and resources to allow these pupils to see the world of creative learning. Their use of sensory objects and musical themes allows the pupils to enjoy themselves to the fullest as well as learn new language and skills. It is such a privilege to be able to access these sessions (and to be honest, we wish we could have them everyday!)”
