We not only run sessions outside of schools, but we also work with schools to bring fun and educational workshops to children within the school environment.
We offer a whole range of workshops which will suit your needs, whether it's specific to a book, a topic or to introduce your classes to new ideas.
We use drama games, role play and improvisation, with an emphasis on creative learning rather than performance.
Whilst we would recommend classes of no more than thirty, the freedom of time and setting is entirely yours.
Check out your options below.
We can provide workshops on either a half-day or full-day basis.
Get in touch now to book us in for your current term and avoid disappointment.

Beside the Seaside
What can you do at the seaside?
Take a trip to the beach, and then jump in Sprouts’ time machine to discover a different kind of holiday back in Victorian times.
We’ll spend a fun hour investigating the seaside landscape, sea front activities, why people go, and how this has all changed over time.
Who am I? A strange alien visits your school and needs help in understanding humans and their individuality.
Children will reinforce their knowledge of external parts of their bodies, their senses and personal identity, as well as thinking about the differences and needs of others around them.
Who was Florence Nightingale, and why was she so important?
Looking into the life and work of the famous nurse, we will visit the Crimea and learn what impact Nightingale had on the hospitals there, and then look into her achievements in later life.
Also making a comparison to the work done by fellow nurse Mary Seacole and the problems she had because of racial prejudice in getting support and recognition for her work.
What makes a good story? What does a story need?
This half day workshop will delve into the world of storytelling. Referring to well-known stories we will investigate how a story is structured, and think about the typical characters that we find in most stories.
We will then move on to finding ways to create our own character and finish up making up and acting out our own stories.
What was school like in 1890?
Take a trip back in time to discover what kind of day children might have at school in Victorian times.
Within the hour children will experience what school was like in Victorian times both in and out of the classroom, and develop a broader understanding of the period.
What happened to children during the war?
Travel back to WW2 and the blitz. All the children have to be evacuated from the cities.
Through role play and active games the group will discover what happened to young evacuees, and think about the experience and what it may have felt like leaving home and going to a strange family.
Who was Ann Frank and why is her story so famous?
Taking a trip back in time to Nazi occupied Holland we investigate how it might have felt to be a Jew at the time, and decide to hide away in our own specially made attic.
Experiencing the tense atmosphere and difficult living conditions, as well as thinking what it might have been like if you were hiding Jews in your property we aim to give a deeper understanding of the ordeal of Ann and many others like her.
What is Shakespeare all about?
This half day workshop will have the children becoming new actors in our troupe. An accessible introduction to the basics of Shakespeare’s language structure and usage, and an aid to understanding the poetry and rhythm of his text.
Using the famous story of Romeo and Juliet, we will interpret the story in our own way, improvising our own versions of the plot, and finally having a go at the language itself!
