Singapore-Wolf Trap Classroom Residency

Managed by Singapore Repertory Theatre’s Learning & Engagement Team, the Singapore-Wolf Trap Classroom Residency is a powerful professional development programme dedicated to two goals:

  • Preparing our young children for a lifetime of learning by giving them arts experiences that connect to subjects across the curriculum

The Approach

Customised – Singapore-Wolf Trap programme aligns with teachers’ existing priorities and curriculum requirements, and is designed to achieve desired outcomes for children and professional milestones for teachers.

Hands-On & In-Depth – Singapore-Wolf Trap Teaching Artists work with teachers and children in their classrooms, allowing teachers to make an immediate impact on their current students, and apply those skills in future lessons.

“The energy that the arts brought to my students and I was the main highlight of this training. I will definitely use the strategies I have learned for transitions, settling down and introductions in my future lessons. This is a big help for teachers that helps to maximise lesson time and the students’ learning.”  Maria Patricia Cruz Pabiz

“The Teaching Artist inspired us and gave us the confidence to teach Arts in a more meaningful and fun way.” – Pre-School Teacher

“I realise how incorporating arts in the lesson is very effective as children pay more attention. I learnt how using simple props as a teaching tool can help children stay more engaged.” – Pre-School Teacher
