Free Resources

Year 7 Project Grimm Tales resources

The resources use the story 'Hansel and Gretel' as a stimulus for students' own exploration. Resources include short videos with the the company in which they talk about their roles, and set students creative tasks.

These activities have been informed by existing evidence based practice drawn from narrative therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, collective trauma, and educational psychology theories regarding metacognition.

Visit our Grimms Learning page to access the learning videos that accompany this pack.

All of our past resources for teachers are available on our Issuu page.

Free CPD

 
We regularly offer free CPD training supporting teachers to use creative drama techniques in the classroom. The CPD sessions are based around our extensive show-based resource packs, and aim to add value to a Unicorn Theatre experience for teachers and pupils. 
 
Our CPD session for the Grimm Tales Online Year 7 Project has now passed, but you can still access our resources to use with your students.
