Drama for Thought, Talk and Writing
DateWed, 25th May, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationLionwood Junior School, Norwich
Primary teachers benefit from having drama strategies, as part of their teaching repertoire. Drama strategies are structures that can be used to purposefully scaffold different types of thinking and inter-thinking in lessons.
Children are stimulated by drama and enjoy participating in it together. The drama provides structured thinking and talking opportunities, as well as generating content and providing a context for purposeful writing.
This course will:
• Enable participants to experience and evaluate primary drama lessons, suitable for KS1 and KS2 classes
• Broaden and deepen participants’ knowledge and practical understanding of drama strategies as ‘thought and talk’ frames
• Help participants make clear links between the selection of different drama strategies, linked directly to different types of writing
• Provide a Drama Strategies booklet and KS1 and KS2 published units of work
£160 for 1 place, £300 for 2 places
‘Patrice uses drama conventions to create opportunities for pupils to secure their learning in new and deeper ways. Her course opened doors for colleagues which they would not have believed possible. In everything she does, she walks delegates through the materials, and discusses the impact this has on children’s learning. Absolutely brilliant!’
Mary Myatt, Adviser and Lead Inspector
