Exploring Narrative Poetry Through Drama at KS2

25th May 2023 – 4pm – 5.30pm (UK time)


This course will explain how teachers can use drama strategies to enable children to actively engage with narrative poetry, in meaningful and memorable ways. The ways in which various drama strategies can be used to help children explore the language, imagery, verses, characters, settings, key moments and themes within a narrative poem, will be considered, as well as ways of enabling children to extend a narrative poem.

Teachers will be guided ‘step by step’, through a KS2 drama lesson, based on a narrative poem.
