CPD: Drama and History

When: Fullday9.15am-3.15pm
Who: All subject staff – Primary KS1/KS2
This course explores active drama strategies to develop and enhance children’s learning in the classroom, with a focus on teaching history (chronological narrative, ancient civilisations, empires, continuity and change, cause and consequence, creating historical accounts and interpreting the past).


Feedback from teachers at previous Drama and History CPD sessions (delivered in person in a day-long session):

  • A really good day’s learning. Interesting, practical, ‘doable’ activities perfect for engaging children (and adults) of all ages. I particularly enjoyed the development of drawing parts of a Viking village and then creating a 3D representation of it and ‘walking’ through it in character. The session encouraged me to be more imaginative with space and work beyond limitations of fixed classroom.
