Children who get regular opportunities to work in groups and express themselves invariably develop self-confidence and social skills more rapidly and more comprehensively than children who don’t.
One of the best ways to achieve this is by using music and rhythm, movement and dance, role-play and drama to support children’s development and progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We have developed our Drama Activities for the Early Years resource to help you provide opportunities for drama activities that will encourage children to use all types of play. The 80 clearly laid out, ready-to-use, practical drama activities in this resource relate to each area of the curriculum.
If you have no previous experience of drama, this resource will help to ensure that you can lead and develop dramatic work with confidence and enthusiasm, creating enjoyable and productive learning experiences from the beginning.
Alternatively, if you feel confident with delivering drama, this resource will help you to find new ideas and inspiration.
The book explains the theories and values behind the activities and gives you tips on how to harness children’s natural abilities and enthusiasm.
Each activity is linked to popular early years themes and children’s interests, making it easy to plan drama sessions or to find a suitable activity for any occasion.
