Children aged 7 and above are invited to come and have fun in our drama class provided by Knots Arts

Knots Arts offers A creative space to untangle social knots

Cassie from Knots Arts says: "Our mission is to create inclusive, friendly and fun sessions were children and young people feel safe and supported to develop their communication skills and build friendships. By meeting others who understand the challenges that social communication difficulties can bring, children are able to work together to embrace their differences and overcome any obstacles that they may present."

The drama sessions consist of games and activities which are designed to support the development of team working, language processing and understanding of speech. Each session begins with a sharing of news from our week, followed by drama games appropriate to the ability of the group and culminating in a drama activity such as story-telling, physical theatre or improvisation. The children contribute ideas for characters and storylines which are included and interwoven ensuring everyone is involved. We end with a group sharing of how we have done and what we enjoyed. The classes are very fluid, with activities suggested by the children and adapted to suit their ideas and interests. Children with any disability and with any level of need are welcome to take part.

Class time: 4.00 - 4.45pm every Tuesday during term time

For those aged 7 and above, children with additional needs and siblings all welcome. Please wear loose comfortable clothing. Free of charge but donations are welcome. Parents are welcome to stay in the room with their child or to come downstairs and have a cup of tea/coffee with the Skylarks staff, volunteers and other parents.
