Twizzle in Schools
Twizzle in Schools hosts a whole range of different workshops in schools, led by professionally trained actors. By taking our performance skills into schools we support curricular-based learning and find new ways of engaging kids in a fun and dynamic environment. Using performing arts, the workshops help to build children’s confidence or to confront and highlight difficult social issues faced in school and at home, such as bullying.
The workshops can also be used to enhance the school curriculum, bringing lessons such as History to life, or can provide special extra-curricular lessons in circus skills or magic to name but a few. This interactive and fun-packed approach has proved to be a hit with school children and teachers alike.
All our trainers are CRB checked and selected based on the workshop being delivered.
Workshop Age Groups:
Ages 5-7 (KS1) and 7-10 (KS2) Primary
Ages 11-13 (KS3) and 14-16 (KS4) Secondary
Ages 16-18 (KS5) Sixth Form/College
Bullying can be a difficult situation in any school or community environment, so Twizzle has put together a creative and interactive workshop which addresses the issues surrounding the subject. We know that some children often bottle up their feelings and keep problems to themselves, whilst others seek a more aggressive release. The actors use humour as well as role-play and discussion to tackle the issues head-on, with an emphasis on positive action.
Anti-bullying workshops are best carried out on location, whether that is a school, community centre, leisure centre or anywhere else you feel it may benefit the children involved.
Take positive action together
Demonstrate how children can empower themselves
Encourage a positive outlook
We offer archery workshops for children over the age of 10. The workshops can be held indoors or outdoors, and are guaranteed to be great fun for all participants. All workshops are taught by a professional archery player. Although the sport can be dangerous if people are reckless, archery teaches children to be responsible for one another and for the equipment they are using, and the workshop is always carried out in a safe environment. Twizzle runs archery workshops for groups of 10+.
