Drama for Oracy


Drama can be used intentionally, to develop children’s oracy skills. This mainly practical course demonstrates how Drama Strategies can be set up as ‘Talk Frames’ in any subject lesson, as well as during ‘whole class drama’ lessons. Drama strategies use different configurations and groupings and provide a range of opportunities for children to talk to (and with) different listeners and responders, (either in or out of role). Teachers will also learn ways of sequencing drama strategies during a ‘whole class drama’, to ensure and maintain an oracy focus.

Teachers will be guided practically and theoretically, through one, two or three lessons, (depending on the time available). Oracy opportunities will be highlighted and explained throughout.
