Group 64's Education Department
The Writers Project
A project for primary school children aged 8-11
Working with published writer Isley Lynn, Group 64's education department have been running the exciting Writers Project for the past 2 years with St Mary’s School in Putney and Sacred Heart School in Roehampton.
Aim - to develop skills, excitement and passion for the process of creative writing and literacy.
Project overview - The project will facilitate the class to create and write their own script based on characters, dialogue and story ideas that are developed through a series of workshops. The class will work with a Playwright and a Director in school and then at Putney Arts Theatre.
The script will then be performed by the class who created it, at our very own Putney Arts Theatre.
