Drama For Recovery

KS1 and KS2

Two drama practitioners

One school day

Delivering a drama games session for every class

Supportive teacher notes

Cost: £320

Teachers are telling us that some children are finding it hard to work co-operatively or find focus, after the period of home schooling. This is understandable and we want to help. Specific drama games, played regularly, can build confidence, concentration, cooperation and creativity. Plus of course they bring laughter, which lowers stress levels for us all!

We propose a whole day in school, demonstrating some simple and effective drama games with each class. The exercises will be tailored to each age group. The teacher can observe and adopt these games, to ease the children back on the road to recovery. Teacher's notes will be provided and our door will always be open for further support. 

Bring back your happy class, with drama games!

Galena the Guiding One is recruiting brave explorers for an urgent quest. Who dares take the perilous journey across the kingdom, to save the endangered Lupu bird?

MPA deliver this scheme of work remotely. Galenka sets each task via 'the all seeing orb'.  Each child invents their character for the role-play. There are games to play, riddles to solve and scenes to improvise and draw. On every step of the journey explorers must keep up their journal and reflect on their feelings, with the help of the mood-o-metre. 

This scheme has been designed to build resilience and well being through immersive role-play. It can be carried out in one intense week or throughout a term.

Curriculum areas: PSHE, creative writing, art and wildlife conservation.
