The Primary Drama Handbook: A Practical Guide for Teachers new to Drama and Teaching Assistants

This book helps professionals to understand the importance and potential of drama for learning and offers step by step practical examples of how drama can work in schools across a range of curriculum subjects.

Drama motivates children and is a powerful way of building skills such as speaking and listening, enhancing children’s self-esteem, and connecting learning creatively across the curriculum. The book presents information, advice and a range of practical material that helps to explain drama skills and strategies at an introductory level. It also contains a sample drama unit for each year group.

The book is ideal for primary NQTs and teaching assistants, as well as those more experienced teachers who are not yet confident using drama techniques and whole class drama.

Patrice Baldwin is Adviser for Arts Development and Improvement, with Norfolk County Council Children’s Services and Chair of National Drama.
