DISCOVER DRAMA: 

DURATION: 1 hour, Weekly 

AGE GROUP: 3 to 7 yrs 

CONTENT: The teacher and students discuss various topics. These can be simple and student-led: such as fun activities they have done during the week or trainer-led and relating to the theme of the class for that session. This is followed by a standard drama game which explores drama concepts such as characterisation, imaginative play or teamwork, or music and movement-based. It is usually physical, although sometimes involves memory games or verbal elements such as phonics.


During Story time, students listen to the story read by the trainer.  The characters and themes are discussed with the students after the book is read. Students and trainer then embark on a drama adventure, based around either the story or theme or phonic sound of the class.  This drama story is nearly always dictated by the creative input of the students and features both them and the teacher in a role.

SATURDAY: 3pm to 4pm
