KS2 Drama in PSHE – Drama for Learning

Drama is used to enhance a SEAL lesson This programme looks at D4LC, an initiative pioneered by Patrice Baldwin of Norfolk County Council Children’s Services. It focuses on one lesson given by John McConnell of Lionwood Junior School in Norwich, and follows his use of Forum Theatre as a creative device to make SEAL lessons more engaging for young children. He uses role play to explore ways of resolving conflict which are relevant to children’s lives, such as arguments over football and fashion, and encourages the children to join in and make suggestions about how to resolve conflict effectively.

The programme is punctuated by comments from Patrice Baldwin herself, with an explanation of her D4LC (Drama for Learning and Creativity) initiative which she uses to train teachers to improve their drama techniques and deliver drama lessons across all areas of the curriculum.
