Key Stage 2   (y3-6; age 7-11 years)

Rather than passive entertainment,

we want our audiences to have an experience that was unique because they were there.

The driving force behind our work is the wish to see children surprise themselves with their own creativity in a world where we are often convinced that being creative is best left to someone else.

For Key Stage 2 we have 'Play-in-a-Days',

an exciting and challenging full day of workshops and performance for up to 150 children.

We can also offer various Class Workshops, ideal for one class at a time, or smaller schools.

KS2 Living History Play-in-a-Days

Choose from:

War and Peace in Ancient Greece

The Romans are Coming!

Vikings versus Saxons

Ancient Egypt: History's Mystery

Children on the Home Front (World War 2)

Children in Victorian Times

The Tudor Dynasty

History and Drama are naturally suited for each other, and a Play-in-a-Day with Treehouse Theatre is fast-paced, challenging and very memorable. Written by a qualified teacher, a Play-in-a-Day makes a fantastic topic hook, can provide a much needed mid-term burst of enthusiasm, or a wonderfully satisfying way to wrap up a project. 

Suitable for up to 30-150 Key stage 2 children.  (Minimum 50 if years 3 or 4)

 

Morning: 4 workshops run consecutively throughout the morning, and each child attends one of the four workshops.

Afternoon: The whole group comes together for a vocal warm-up, performance tips, to get dressed up and perform the show!

Every child has a part in the play, and will also be the audience and watch their fellow students perform.

(Its not possible or suitable for the rest of the school or parents to watch)

 

Our Play-in-a-Days are a rewarding and confidence-inspiring experience for children. The inclusive and supportive atmosphere of the day ensures that everyone goes away with that wonderful feeling of having ‘put on a show together’.
