Whole class Drama is a social learning medium. It can enable peers to personally, emotionally and cognitively engage together, with ‘real life’ situations, issues and events, in a safely distanced, active and reflective way.

This online session will explain how to set up a Drama Contract with the class first, then ‘step by step,’ how to use Drama strategies with a KS1 picture book, that intentionally focusses on the PSHE learning opportunities within it. The possible use of Teacher in Role, will also be considered.

Resources

  • A Drama Strategies booklet

  • A PSHE focused lesson plan

  • A copy of the Powerpoint (as a PDF)

  • A relevant published article
