School Workshops

Our experienced team of Polka Practitioners can offer the following workshops in your school for Reception, KS1 & KS2: 

Tailor-made Workshops

We can create a workshop for you and your class. Polka’s dedicated Creative Learning team can make a workshop to suit any theme, topic or book you are working on. The list below has some workshop suggestions, but whatever you are studying we will work with you to bring the curriculum to life in a tailor-made workshop.

Polka40 Workshops

This year marks our 40th birthday and to celebrate we have created a special Polka40 themed workshop! Children will have fun developing their drama skills through activities inspired by a wonderful collection of props, costumes, scripts and music from past Polka shows!

Show-related Workshops

These workshops based on a Polka production explore the play’s themes and production elements such as music, dance or movement.

Page to Stage Workshops

Polka practitioners will bring your favourite books to life! Using drama games and techniques to explore characters and themes from the story, students will have the opportunity to explore their favourite characters and themes in their very own classroom.

Create a Play in a Day

Our director visits your class and works with them throughout the day to devise a play.  We can focus on a specific theme or aspect of the curriculum and using improvisation, role play and storytelling techniques, use drama to explore other areas of learning. Work as a team to create a piece of theatre that can be performed to peers and teachers at the end of the school day.

Puppetry Workshops

Join our professional puppet and prop makers as they deliver workshops exploring either rod puppets, hand puppets, junk puppets, two dimensional puppets or the art of object manipulation.  Focusing on a theme or a book you are working on in class, we can work with your group to create their own individual puppets and learn how to bring them to life.
