A message from Polly Simmonds,  

Head of Creative Learning


Dear Teacher,


“Since the start of the project, I have seen a noticeable improvement in the children’s confidence in class. Pupils feel safe to express themselves and share their ideas willingly. I have seen an increase in their imagination and creativity when writing, including using a wider range of vocabulary during free writing.”  Year 3 teacher – Benedict Primary School

“The Polka practitioners are very experienced and have delivered their sessions (face to face and online) in a way that is child friendly, engaging and has been filled with excellent practical ideas that I will be able to use in my future lessons to support writing”   Year 3 teacher – Sherwood Primary School

“It was brilliant and really allowed the kids to flourish and be more confident in themselves and their abilities.”  Year 3 teacher – Malmesbury Primary School

Following the success of the pilot, we have managed to secure funding to run the project in 2021. We have now started the process of selecting schools to take part.

If you are interested in your Year 3 pupils taking part in this fully-funded creative arts project, please read through the application form. Fill out and return it via email to polly@polkatheatre.com by 30th November 2020.
