GSC SPRITES is our series of after-school Shakespeare Drama Clubs, regularly held in local Schools. This term, we will be running a special Sprites session at GSC HQ for children aged 9-14.
GSC Sprites will teach your child to tell stories in a fun and interactive way, to create characters, to use their imaginations and to work and play as a team. Drama helps build confidence and teaches better communication skills. We will explore a Shakespeare play every term, putting the story and its characters into the children's own words.
It has been great to see the children of QE developing through their roles within the GSC Sprites Drama Club. It has helped boost their confidence, develop their creativity and allowed them to express themselves.
Children who in school are often shy and quiet, have found a means to truly express themselves and often “come out of their shells”, as well as working on the skills of cooperation and negotiation as a member of a team.
