Early Years Drama™ 4 - 5 years
Stories have enormous learning power. They can delight, captivate, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate and challenge. They also help young children understand and explore the world they live in. So there's no better time to do this than when children are just starting big school!
Our Early Years Drama classes, mapped to the EYFS curricula for the Reception year in England, and P1 in Northern Ireland, are designed to take your children into an imaginary world where they can comfortably explore feelings, language, movement and self-expression and their relationships with others. Our skilled drama practitioners guide your children through each story creatively, allowing them to imagine and create their very own version as they all become the sights, sounds and characters together.
At the beginning of term, you receive a detailed Creative Planning Pack™ mapping the curriculum links and providing suggestions for continued exploration of the stories and themes. These classes are a great addition to your literacy, creative or expressive arts planning and also provide a valuable opportunity for observation time if needed.
"Thank you very much for the excellent drama sessions. The children are really enjoying it and I notice how valuable it is in helping them to gain confidence and self-expression."
