By inviting Noodle Performance Arts into your school, you will be ensuring your students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively. Although our classes are always fun, they do have serious benefits as taking part in the performing arts is known to aid social, cognitive, emotional and physical development.

All our staff have enhanced CRB status and are fully insured.  We are also able to manage all parent communications and payments ourselves if your school prefers, via our bespoke customer management system. To find out more about how we can work with your school, contact us now.

PPA Cover

At Noodle, we appreciate how hard its can be for schools to find quality, reliable and affordable PPA cover. We can provide PPA cover for the following subjects, on an hourly, half-day or full day rate:

  • Musical Theatre
  • Drama
  • Dance
  • Music

We encourage children to challenge themselves and learn new skills, which helps to build confidence and has a positive impact on all areas of their lives. Children will become more comfortable with public speaking, working with teams to achieve objectives and problem solving.

We can provide lessons with cross-curricular topics as stimuli, such as the Romans, Ancient Greece, Diwali as well as PHSE topics such as bullying. We also have a range of lesson plans linked to children’s literature. We aim to enhance a child’s learning experience of these topics and help them to explore the subjects from a different perspective.  We will work with you to provide a framework to fit in with your KS1 or KS2 curriculum.

Are you looking for something different to offer the children at your nursery? Performing arts and dance are great ways to nurture children’s confidence and self-esteem as well as develop their communication and gross motor skills.

We already run a number of classes at private nurseries throughout the South Yorkshire and Cheshire areas. We can offer:

  • Performing Arts (including our popular ‘Bringing Books to Life’ lesson plans)
  • Ballet Tots
  • Noodle Dance

Sessions usually last between 30 and 45 minutes depending on the age of the children.  Classes can be charged to the nursery or direct to parents, using our bespoke customer management system.

Here’s what one of our lovely nurseries said about us:

Banana Moon Day Nursery have been working with Noodle Dance for a few years now and all our children have loved their sessions! They offer a range of themes and activities which are tailored to our different age groups at nursery. The children see the instructors fortnightly but talk about Noodles constantly, singing the songs all week long both here and at home! Our youngest children really benefit from their session as they are very sensory and expressive, they love the yoga style sections which helps the more sensitive children join in with group work without feeling overwhelmed.  “Noodles Time” is highly anticipated in our pre-school room, our bigger children really enjoy getting physical and having a boogie with the instructors which is something we love to see. These kind of classes encourage imagination, confidence and expression which in turn, supports the children across all areas of development. The instructors are always very friendly and professional, they are well prepared with props and resources too. The toddlers are especially fond of caterpillar! Amazing service and I would definitely recommend.

Noodle can supply a wide range of workshops for your nursery, children’s centre, school or other setting.  We can design a bespoke session tailored to your needs or you can choose from one of our existing sessions. As well as workshops for youngsters, we also offer sessions where both parents and children can work together.

We have a range of very popular sessions, including The Gruffalo, Every Bunny Dance, Box of Tricks and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We are happy to work with any book you choose. Just let us know the book you would like and we will put together an exciting and engaging workshop for your class.

Themed workshops

We can deliver workshops which fit in with a variety of themes and topics. These include:

  • The Pied Piper
  • Space
  • Seasons
  • People Who Help Us

Please get in touch with us to discuss your own ideas and requirements.

Poetry and Rhyming

Children get to grips with poems and rhymes by looking at poetry they already know, learning new verses and having a go at making up their own.


Sessions for special occasions

Sometimes workshops should simply be fun. If you are planning an event, celebration or a treat, we can come along and provide an entertaining session to larger groups of children.

“Thank you so much for your help and support today, we’ve had lots of lovely feedback, Noodle Performance Arts are definitely a favourite!”

Anne Frost, Sheffield Early Years Schools Library Service

Circus Themed Workshop

“What the children experienced was unique to them, time to be themselves, time to have fun and to enjoy, take delight and be applauded.  Having applause is something many children will never experience, so, hardly any wonder our children took great delight in their Noodle Workshop.”

Havercroft Children’s Centre

After-school classes

“Many times I have seen the child who is shy about putting up his or her hand to answer or ask a question in class blossom in confidence after becoming involved in the performing arts.”
