Event - Stan's Cafe

21 April 2021

The theatre company Stan’s Café visited school to work with children from Years 3, 5 and 6.

The project, ‘On the Starting Grid’, is the first part of a long-term collaboration with our school using drama techniques to help pupils develop their English skills. Teachers worked with the actor Carys Jones, from Stan’s Café, to bring excitement and imagination into the classroom, improving vocabulary, creative writing, confidence and other English skills.

During the lesson, children became commentators describing a scalextric relay race held in the school hall.

After the workshop, our challenge was to work with a partner to create an exciting piece of journalistic writing about the races.
