Free KS1 & KS2 INSET on The Tempest
Tuesday 22 November, 9am-3pm
This practical day will give you plenty of ideas for introducing The Tempest to children as early as possible. We will look at how we can introduce the themes of the play in ways which connect with children's own experiences.
We will then explore how the language can be brought to life through collaborative, ensemble-based approaches. This day will support with the development of literacy, speaking and listening, and help you towards creating a performance with children.
