Improved mental health
Playing and having fun are great ways to simply break down boundaries and to experiment with different roles safely, without judgement or criticism. The time spent in our structured sessions exploring how characters feel and think will help to promote empathy and reflection which is crucial to positive self awareness.
Confidence and collaboration
We actively encourage students to work with respect through listening to each other and being courteous. Our commitment to inclusion enables all children the same opportunities to shine. Even if you consider your child to be typically shy and quiet you will see that soon feel more confident sharing ideas and participating in the structured play, perhaps initially alongside another adult or child before eventually ceasing chances to take centre stage.
Language, Communication and Speech
We utilise movement, and music as well as carefully selected games to support children as they individually discover and process their unique imaginative ability
We use a range of exercises to promote awareness of diction, pitch, intonation and volume to help support confident speakers. In addition to this, our Peekaplayers will learn how posture and facial expression can contribute to story telling. We promote a wide use of vocabulary as well as correct the pronunciation of words.
Concentration, Commitment and Discipline
Our specially considered programme subtly encourages listening to instructions as well as gathering skills incrementally to build on week by week.. This requires students to value patience, determination and focus all of which can be applied to numerous aspects of their everyday lives.
Peekaplayers is an inclusive drama and storytelling programme. We combine. creative and imaginative elements of play together with the structure and purpose of story telling to create a meaningful education for children. We utilise movement, and music as well as carefully selected games to support children as they individually discover and process their unique imaginative ability.
