Learning through drama

“You opened my imagination up.
That’s not something I often get to do in school.”
(quote from a Year 6 girl after taking part in the ‘Pirates’ workshop)

dramafolder01Pupils are introduced to role play, improvisation, hot-seating, thought-tracking and teacher-in-role as dramatic routes into exploring situations or stories. They develop imagination and speaking and listening skills, which can feed into their writing work (writing follow-up sessions can also be arranged).
