In January and February we were invited to run an after-school drama club in Winkleigh primary school. Education Officer Sarah Sharp took the lead in delivering four fun drama workshops that developed the children’s presentational skills, using two Dartmoor stories – The Hunted Hare and The Cavalier of Blackaton Tor – as material.
The pupils shared their performance of the stories with family members and teachers in the final session.
We worked with gifted and talented pupils from four primary schools who came to work with us at Hatherleigh. These also included Northlew, Lewtrenchard and Winkleigh schools. They wrote and recorded an audio play based on the myth of the Tinner of the Redbrook.
