Three years ago, The Habbit Factory was contacted by Brookside Infant School, who had heard of the success we had achieved in the areas of theatre production, and also improving the confidence of children. They requested the assistance of The Habbit Factory Team at their school, and so we set up an After School Programme, which provides the experience of The Habbit Factory for 1 hour per week to groups of varying ages.
Over the years we have produced and perfected many programmes for schools and companies alike. We have created sessions that are based around teaching children performance techniques, whilst working within the school’s curriculum. The children gain confidence and knowledge in their subject area, which is often chosen by the school. For example, a group of year 4 pupils studying the Novel ‘The Twits’ in their English lessons was then explored through the arts of drama, focussing on the different characters and plots throughout the book.
The Habbit Factory has worked with a number of educational establishments in the past, and continues to do so currently. These include; Brookside Infant School, Brookside Junior School, Drapers Academy, Mead Primary School, St. Ursula’s Primary School, Pyrgo Priory, Newtons Primary School and Essex After School Club.
