Pyjama Drama was established in 2005 in the UK, and since then, has enjoyed international success. We are experienced teachers who train other practitioners how to use our drama and imaginative play techniques and resources to develop children’s life skills and meet UK curriculum objectives (2 – 11 years). Many people believe they can’t ‘do drama’, but nothing could be further from the truth. We have successfully trained people from all over the world, from the most to the least confident, and the majority with little or no prior drama experience. We believe drama should play a part in every child’s life, but we don’t want to create child actors. All our activities are designed to ignite children’s imaginations while developing the skills they need to lead happy and successful lives.

Do you want to find ways to prevent bullying and encourage your children to recognise and celebrate difference? Would your children benefit from learning how to manage relationships more effectively?  Would you love to use drama in your classroom but are unsure how to begin?

Our ‘Stand Up and Act Out’ curriculum has been written to enable any teaching professional to confidently deliver outstanding drama lessons across the primary phase with little to no planning.

100% of people leave our courses reporting an increase in their confidence to deliver drama activities.

The focus of this course is to teach participants how to deliver the ‘Stand Up and Act Out’ primary school curriculum. The curriculum uses drama to promote and celebrate diversity and helps prevent bullying by teaching children how to be upstanders, able to respectfully stand up for themselves, and each other.

In each lesson, children in years 1 – 6 are challenged with helping a different imaginary character who is being teased, picked on, or bullied because of a real or perceived difference. EYFS children play a different drama game each lesson that help them explore friendships and celebrate the differences they see in school and in the wider world. Across the age-range children take on different roles and explore sometimes difficult concepts in the safe and supportive environment of the classroom, developing knowledge and skills they can apply to real-life situations.

There is no expectation for attendees to ‘perform’ or role play during the course although group work is a key feature of the day.
