Child-led drama in three easy steps!

The seemingly boundless energy of a toddler or young child can tire even the most active of adults as they spill out into the world and through early childhood; first of all crawling, then cruising, toddling, walking then running, tumbling and exploring. The first year of a child’s life is a time of rapid and astonishing development, but it’s somewhere towards the end of a child’s second year that something truly magical happens – the imagination starts to unfold!...

Last weekend our franchisees packed their bags and made their way to Manchester for our Annual Seminar, flooding the city with a sea of red.

Road Safety Week 2016

Pyjama Drama is the perfect vehicle (excuse the pun!) to teach children road safety; sessions use drama to place children in a range of situations such as crossing busy roads when distracted, walking on roads without curbs or navigating islands and crossings. Role play, storytelling and pretend encourage children to ‘trial’ these situations in the safety of the drama and explore a range of consequences. Original music and imaginative games aid children’s understanding of the importance using the green cross code and wearing high visibility clothing in such a fun way that they won’t even realise they are learning!...

We were close, however, to wearing a hole in BIG W’s party aisle.... Read more
