Activity Ideas for Drama at Foundation Stage

Drama activities are a rich opportunity to develop Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities. These skills need to be explicitly developed alongside knowledge and understanding, using an infused approach.

The three sample lessons in our Activity Ideas for Drama at Foundation Stage resource highlight how a skill or capability occurs naturally during a lesson. The lesson structure ensures that teachers and children can recognise the thinking skill or personal capability that children are developing. This is a key factor in their effective development.

The resource also features:

  • Suggested Warm-Up Exercises;
  • Suggested Strategy: The Imaginative Journey; and
  • Additional Ideas for Drama.
