Drama is a powerful way to engage pupils in learning. Drama supports speaking and listening, encourages reading and writing and can help to build children’s confidence and self-esteem.
National Drama is the leading national association for drama teachers and theatre educators. They are offering a subsidised half day CPD workshop for teachers in Leeds on Tuesday 8 October 2019 from 1:15 – 4:30 pm at Manor Wood Primary School, Carr Manor Road, Leeds LS17 5DJ (NB: Manor Wood Primary School was previously known as Carr Manor Primary School).
The training will be delivered by nationally recognised drama in education practitioners: Geoff Readman, Deborah Pakkar-Hull and Anthony Haddon. The session will:
• Introduce drama strategies to teachers who are new to drama;
• Engage teachers in a drama experience that deepens their knowledge of drama skills, conventions and form;
• Highlight the learning potential when teacher and pupils work collaboratively in role;
• Provide resources that can be used in the classroom.
