Primary: Developing Oracy through Drama

Use drama to get creative and get talking!


Speaking and listening, talk for learning and language development are all vital for developing pupils’ thinking and learning skills. Research from the Education Endowment Foundation indicates that language programmes benefit children’s attainment, particularly those who may be seen as disadvantaged learners.

Drama is an excellent tool to engage pupils in their learning, providing pupils with tangible experiences. Drama techniques and conventions can develop pupil's communication skills and also raise confidence and self-esteem. Working creatively allows pupils to question and test out ideas in a collaborative way and can be an effective approach to developing pupils skills in speech, language and communication.


During the training course, delegates will:
  • Develop an understanding of how drama approaches can support pupils’ speaking and listening skills
  • Explore a range of starting points for developing drama
  • Participate in creative drama activities which can be applied easily in a classroom setting
