“Drama is not simply a subject, but also a method … a learning tool. Furthermore, it is one of the key ways in which children gain an understanding of themselves and of others.”
( J Neelands.1992.3)
Drama is a vital way of communicating in school, public life and internationally.
Drama enables pupils to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and to communicate with others effectively.
As a school we want to give children the opportunity to use drama in many areas of the curriculum, including the provision of dedicated drama lessons from year 4, as it is an extremely effective means of communicating ideas.
Practical learning can be crucial to understanding.
