“As a very small country school these video experiences are perfect for our kids.”

Lyndhurst Public School

Use drama making techniques to explore ways to manage new experiences

Meet facilitator Catherine who introduces us to the characters of Charlie, Cleo and Andy as they experience new situations in their everyday life.

Charlie is the new kid in class; how will he settle in? Cleo is having a birthday party, but who will she invite? Andy is excited to go to the museum, but will he ever get to see the dinosaurs? And how will each of them shine on concert day?

In this series of on-demand video workshops, join Cath and the characters on a drama adventure. These ten-minute workshops take participants through warm-ups and games that ignite imagination and are inclusive of all abilities. Students have the opportunity to analyse scenes and feelings before making choices for the characters and exploring various outcomes for Charlie, Cleo and Andy.

With a focus on identifying and managing feelings, this workshop brings drama into the classroom and offers further opportunities for play and exploration with teachers, carers and peers. Make your own puppets and get exploring. Designed especially for students who have additional needs, it is also suitable for students in early stages 1 and 2.
