Create & Play KS1

4 - 7 year olds

Create & Play is a carefully curated series of online drama videos and learning resources for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 students, introducing them to drama, creativity and theatre making. Our facilitators and storytellers will bring your home schools to life with fun-filled learning opportunities as the children get to enjoy fantastic stories and enriching drama activities.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning throughout February, two new learning resources will be published here, on the Hull Truck Theatre website. These videos and downloadable printable learning resources can be accessed by anyone at any time (no login necessary!). Updated information and new resources will appear here each week. After the publication date, the resources will be available on-demand for you to incorporate into your weekly lesson planning.

Key Stage 1 resources will include engaging content, exercises and activities centred around well-known children’s stories. We’ll be encouraging learners to channel their fun and imagination as we take a deep dive into the joy of storytelling.
