At St Edmund’s, Drama is child-centred and draws upon each child’s interests, experience and cultural background. We celebrate the dramatic process, performance and good experiences of ‘theatre’.

Our main aims are:

  • To give all children the opportunity to develop their personality and their powers of imagination and communication.
  • To foster confidence, social awareness and the creative potential present in all children.
  • To enable children to develop a sense of audience.

Through Drama, children may explore all areas of the curriculum – historical topics, social issues, biographical accounts etc. We value the dramatic process as a resource to be used whenever the opportunity arises.

Our approach to drama includes the following techniques:

  • Games
  • Role Play
  • Scripted and Non-scripted Drama
  • Puppets and Masks
  • Movement and Mime
  • Films and Communication Media
