Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Drama Workshops and Storytelling in French, German and Spanish

Whether you are introducing your little ones to a new language, immersing your KS1 and KS2 children in traditional fairytales, or exploring the adventures of The Three Musketeers or Don Quijote with your older students, each level of learning is catered for through our range of drama sessions.

Our sessions have been specifically developed to support the teaching of French, German and Spanish through drama activities. 

  • Early Years’ French Storytelling
    • Greater London & Essex
    • West Midlands & South West

    Currently unavailable in the South West

    One specialist language facilitator visits your school telling the well-known fairytale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, in French. Using songs, rhymes and repetition of key vocabulary, the children will be immersed in the language and delight in bringing this classic tale to life. 

    "This was spot on what I was looking for: using French vocabulary they know and making it fun! The children came back to their classroom buzzing with excitment after the session." 
    Elisabeth Poirel, Abercorn School, St John's Wood

  • Language Launchpad! - KS1
    • Greater London & Essex

    Launch your KS1 pupils into languages with a journey to the Galaxy of Communication. Watch your class blast off and grow in confidence as they explore and experiment with your chosen language. This is the perfect introduction to the study of MFL.  

    "The children were really engaged and really liked the stories and activities. The teachers have also gained some good ideas and are now really enthusiastic when teaching French."
    Anne-Sophie Cousin-Poiron, Beecholme Primary School, Mitcham, Surrey

    "Our boys loved the experience. The vocab and phraseology level was spot on and the constant repetition was exactly as needed but fun at the same time. The facilitator was a star performer who looked as though he was enjoying the show as much as the boys!"
    Gill Howard, St Anthony’s Prep School, Hampstead

  • Les Trois Mousquetaires - KS3
    • Greater London & Essex

    Journey back in time to the turbulent streets of Paris. Les gardes du Cardinal are pitted against Les Mousquetaires du Roi. The threat of violence hangs in the air, fights break out on every corner and impassioned mottos ring out:

    "Vive le Cardinal!"   

    "Tous pour un, un pour tous!"

    D'Artagnan, a brave and impetuous young man from the countryside, longs to travel to Paris and join the famed and revered Mousquetaires. But with obstacles facing him at every turn, will D'Artagnan ever achieve his dream?

    "The pupils really enjoyed the content and learned about French history and culture as well as the language. It was much more fun and engaging than other MFL theatre sessions I have previously seen."
    Emily Richardson, West London Free School, Hammersmith

  • Don Quijote de la Mancha - KS3
    • Greater London & Essex

    Meet the famous Don Quijote de la Mancha, self-pronounced knight errant and defender of chivalry, as he sallies forth to battle giants, vanquish enchanters and save damsels in distress. Or so he believes! At his side, the ever-faithful Sancho Panza tries to keep his master out of danger, but Don Quijote’s ‘chivalry’ leads to misadventure at every step.

    By turns comically farcical and touchingly tragic, the story of this hapless pair draws us in to share in their daring escapades.

    "Excellent performance - very engaging, memorable and perfect in terms of timing and length. The pupils LOVED being involved in the session."
    Marie-Cecile Bourgois, The Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls, Ealing
