A Child’s Christmas in Wales

We continue to work with the City and Council of Swansea’s Education Department, taking our adaptations of this Christmas classic into schools in the local area.

At Key Stage Two level, we perform the piece and then provide a theatre skills’ workshop for the students to enhance their understanding of the piece, improve their confidence levels and develop their communication skills

At Key Stage Three, the performance is a catalyst for a question and answer session about the work and the author to improve the learning experience for the attending students.

We also provide resources websites to help the teachers with preparation for the events.
