Family bonding through drama - Baytree Centre, UK

Friday, June 8, 2018

A key tenet of the FATIMA project is that learning can take all sorts of forms, and regularly happens outside the classroom. With this in mind, our partner Baytree in collaboration with the family service at the National Theatre brought out costumes and music for a fun drama workshop!

Held for mothers and daughters, the workshop used drama, improvisation, songs, and creative story-telling to bring out ideas about being led by your conscience and avoiding bad behaviour.

While the participants felt shy at the start, they soon began participating enthusiastically, practising their public speaking skills and sharing their creative input. They reported how much they appreciated spending time with their family and getting to know other families.

All in all, it was a great opportunity to combine language learning and communication-building with family bonding and socialisation!
