UKLA Viewpoints: Drama

  • imaginative play and drama are critical in early language and literacy development, however, standardised measures, particularly in the early years, threaten the place of drama in the curriculum
  • drama is a powerful motivator of creative learning however, creativity is often neglected in the primary curriculum because of high stakes learning
  • for children fully to benefit from drama approaches, teachers need to plan carefully but develop learning spontaneously.
