KS1/2 Drama - Teaching Drama: Focus, Freeze and Think

mediumblue

Summary

This programme provides an opportunity to see a range of drama techniques applied in the classroom.

We follow three teachers from Newton Farm School in Middlesex as they explore the techniques they recently learnt in a drama workshop.

Year 2 teacher Lara Miller tackles the subject of medieval castles with her class, whilst Ian Sutherland uses "frozen pictures" and "thought tracking" techniques to enhance his Year 4 Life in Tudor England project.

Meanwhile, Gill Bland engages her Year 6 literacy class as she works on the opening of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit".

Both teachers and pupils later reflect on their experiences, discussing how they feel the techniques have worked.
