SEN Conference 2012

HANDMADE THEATRE Bring Learning to Life at the SEN Conference 2012

In July 2012 HandMade Theatre delivered a training session as part of the year’s Nottingham City Council SEN conference entitled ‘Bringing Learning to Life’.  We gave participants the opportunity to take part in a short performance aboard the Flying Machine, listen to a short presentation about the company and the principles we use in our work, and have a go at making some hand made props of their own. It proved a great success with everyone enthusiastic when taking part in the activities. Participants produced some excellent props that they were then able to take home – take a look at our gallery below to see some of the activities…

‘Amazing, loads of ideas to inspire my teaching and for hands on activities.’

‘Interactive for any age group, lots of ideas for sensory things to make.  Needed more time.’

‘Definitely an experience! Was a little nervous at first… Kids would love it.’
