Due to the success of our London Insets in 2007/8 we are now offering places on our exciting new Key Stage 1 Teachers’ 1 Day Course at Salisbury Arts Centre on Wed 26th Nov 2008 which will be presented by our Primary expert Gaynor Davies, a former County Inspector for Drama and Media.
A uniquely interactive and innovative workshop offering practical and transferable skills & strategies to aid and improve the teaching of drama at Key Stage One
Who should attend?
Key Stage One teachers and classroom assistants who want to develop drama skills to extend their teaching repertoire.
This is a day of practical workshops for teachers and teaching assistants of Key Stage One who are unfamiliar with drama techniques but keen to have a go and learn!
You will learn lots of practical ways of getting your pupils to engage in imaginative and creative activities so they in turn will have plenty to talk and write about!
A variety of tried and tested drama strategies will be used to explore traditional stories and classic tales. We will also look at a wide range of different visual stimuli that are designed to help your pupils engage by making them think and giving them problems to explore and solve.
Delegates will each receive a course teaching pack giving full details of all the activities undertaken on the day, lunch, ongoing refreshments and much, much more!

‘The session provided plenty of ideas for manageable drama activities and, most importantly, was great fun. It was an excellent opportunity for staff to work together.’
‘Exciting and full of innovative but classroom friendly ideas’
‘I’ve even seen confessed ‘drama shy’ teachers not only join-in the sessions but also leave inspired & prepared to ‘do’ drama with their pupils.’
‘A really innovative piece of drama work which teachers found inspiring. Gaynor moves teachers thinking and practice on in a very interactive and realistic way’.
