Use the topic of theatre as the basis for some inspiring literacy activities
What could be more perfect for a topic on the theatre, than a series of drama based literacy lessons, including improvisation, roleplay, using playscripts and developing play-writing skills? It’s an ideal way to help children lose their inhibitions by encouraging them to read and perform in an expressive way. It’s also a great way to introduce younger children to the terms ‘character, setting and plot’.
