Drama in the New Primary Curriculum
The Rose Report has undoubtedly given drama the potential to be at the centre of the curriculum. With the current developments in ECM and creativity primary teachers find themselves confronted with demands which drama can meet in an all embracing fashion.
Till now, the trend sees drama activities sprinkled throughout the curriculum to provide some practical dynamics to the learning.

This session will cover collaborative story telling, assessment for learning and working from stories/topics.It will also cover topic mapping.
