DateThu, 10th November, 2016
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationSt William’s Primary School, William’s Loke, Norwich
All primary teachers of English would benefit from knowing and using some drama strategies effectively and confidently, as part of their teaching repertoire.
Drama is highly engaging, motivational and inclusive. Its’ associated strategies can be used to stimulate and scaffold different types of thought and talk in English lessons and across the curriculum. Drama techniques can be selectively used to help children find, understand and communicate the meaning within texts. Drama can also provide content and contexts for different types of talk before writing, e.g. poetry, reports, accounts, stories, etc.
This course will:
• Enable participants to experience and evaluate three primary ‘Drama for English’ lessons, ( KS1, lower and upper KS2)
• Broaden and deepen participants’ knowledge and practical understanding of a range of effective drama strategies
• Help participants use drama strategies with different text types
• Exemplify how Drama can support and improve children as writers
• Provide a Drama Strategies resource 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
