“Strathmore School would highly recommend Silly Train Theatre Company;
.......we know you will be blown away by their professionalism and skills."
The three actors, ‘Biff, Bash and Bosh’ were likeable, friendly and full of enthusiasm and it was fabulous to see how inclusive the workshops were so that all of our pupils could engage with them.”

Fun, interactive drama workshops for SEN students
Our fun and inclusive workshops are specifically designed to the needs of your students and link in with your creative curriculum.
Using physicality, voice and clowning we use images, music and costumes to inspire the students to pretend, move and play.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
We come into your school 2 weeks before to spend time with your students so that we can tailor the workshops to link in with the thems of your curriculum, and what you want to gain from the experience.
Our workshops cater for the differing learning styles of your students, using auditory, visual and kinesthetic modes of teaching.
Using physicality, voice and clowning we use images, music and costumes to inspire the students to pretend, move and play, as we take them on a journey through their imagintion!
We feed back our observations to celebrate how individual students participated and responded to the activities.
for example, at Strathmore School, we were delighted that 2 of the students were nominated for the Strathmore Cup, based on the feedback we gave about their huge progression in engagement and participation during the course of the workshops and performance.
NOT YET CONVINCED?
We would love to come to your school and offer a FREE TASTER WORKSHOP in order to show you what we can do!
At Strathmore School we offered 3 x 2 hour workshops over 2 days and together with a group of students, we developed a performance, which the students then performed in front of the other pupils.
"The Silly Train Theatre actors were likeable, friendly and full of enthusiasm which not only motivated our pupils but also our staff!
The students responded positively to Josie, David and Simon and we saw noticeable progression in the student’s engagement and participation over the 2 days. It was fabulous to see how inclusive the workshops were so that all of our pupils could engage with them."
Sarah Hurtado, deputy head
We (the staff) enjoyed seeing the students engaged in their environment and taking part in the various parts of role play, which can be an achievement for some of our students with ASD.
I particularly appreciate that you were inclusive of all students and you were sensitive to their individual needs at the same time.
