EDUCATION NEWS

Theatre Royal Stratford East partnered with West Ham United Foundation to create CREATIVE WORDS - a creative arts, poetry, drama and spoken word programme at Kingsford and Royal Docks Community Schools. The programme supports young people within secondary schools to positively enhance their English Language and Literacy attainment levels, whilst providing unique opportunities to develop confidence and engage with their local theatre through interactive sessions and a celebratory performance.

 

We are pleased to have completed our Creative Word project with Royal Docks and Kingsford students - exploring the power of words. Please take a look at their work above and see their progress throughout the film. Many Thanks to West Ham Foundation for their support.

If you are a school or college interested in developing language through poetry; then please contact Jan Sharkey-Dodds on JSharkey-Dodds@stratfordeast.com
