Drama is Fun at Primary

Drama is Fun


During drama lessons with Mrs Hourn, Year 4/5 students have been planning and performing dramatic adaptations of different books from Andy Lee’s ‘Do Not Read this Book’ series. In small groups, students were asked to plan roles, costumes, and props for their performance.  

Students used butchers paper to resourcefully create a variety of props including dragons, underwear, flags and even a tomato sauce bottle! Every group had fantastic, imaginative ideas and showed fantastic cooperative skills when working together. 


When it came to performing their book in front of the class, every student got in and had a go. There were a lot of laughs and funny moments during their performances.
