Speak Up provides a wide range of bespoke workshops in London and surrounding areas. We believe that all schools, charities and communities are different so we take pride in putting together a workshop that fits your needs.
Primary School Workshops
Speak Up works with both infant and junior primary schools. Introducing drama through a fabulous range of techniques. Such as role play, devising short plays, improvising, exploring physicality through space, imaginative games and much more…
Speak Up provides its popular drama club working on a termly basis. In the term we will devise a performance which we'll have several weeks to rehearse, this gives the children the confidence to perform in front of an audience. Inviting parents and staff along to watch. Speak Up also supports teachers when guiding their students through Shakespearean text, by focusing on a play and making it into a ‘bitesize’ version which allows the children to understand and engage with the text in a fun filled way.
Secondary School Drama Workshops
Speak Up works with all years throughout secondary school. Introducing a safe space where students can share their ideas in a constructive and fun filled environment. Which then allows the students to build their confidence and self-esteem. Speak Up also supports teachers when guiding their students through Shakespearean text, by focusing on a play and making it into a ‘bitesize’ version which allows the children to understand and engage with the text in a fun filled way.
Some other skills we explore are:
• Performance Skills
• Approaching the script
• Exploring your physicality
• Using your voice properly
We believe when exploring different forms of drama techniques, we have the chance to express ourselves in different ways we did not know possible. Having these skills can prepare the students for job opportunities and it really builds their confidence when public speaking.
Charity And Community Workshops
Speak Up prides itself when working with charities and communities across London and surrounding areas. We create each workshop specifically for what the community or charities needs.
Working with Mind Charity on their Pause...Breathe...Respond -- listening and speaking mindfully, a two-day interactive workshop. Speak Up explored the themes of empathy, being present in the moment then allowing the presence to enable you to be more compassionate and less bored or negative. When working with the communities and charities we want our students to be able to empathise and connect with others to understand how they feel and think. It automatically changes how you interact with others; how you look, listen, think, feel and learn.
