All The World’s A Stage: The incredible benefits of Drama in primary education
What is one thing that can grow a child’s confidence, strengthen their focus, build their courage AND is fun? Drama lessons! From cognitive growth in learning and memorising lines, to understanding the motivation of the characters to build empathy and life perspective, drama incorporates a multi-layer approach to learning with the emotional layers of the text and the understanding of the language.
Join local drama teacher and director of Brightsparks Performing Arts School, Zoe Emanuel and John Colet School Head Julian Wilcock for an in-depth discussion about the benefits of drama lessons for young children.
Every child at John Colet School experiences the thrill of acting on stage, every year. And for nearly 40 years of Shakespeare Festivals, teachers have witnessed some wonderful transformations.
