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.

This course is designed to show participants how easy it is for anyone, no matter what their experience of drama, to lead drama and imaginative play activities that develop children’s personal, social, and emotional skills (EYFS).  Focussing on emotions, the course looks at how drama is the perfect tool for helping children in their early years develop emotional literacy, as well as other crucial skills such as communication, empathy, and confidence.

Step-by-step instructions show participants how to create imaginary worlds and characters, how to lead drama games, and how to employ simple but powerful techniques that ensure all children are engaged, on-task, and eager to participate.

Attendees will learn by observing the trainer; watching and evaluating teacher demonstration videos; participating in whole/small group discussion and trying out techniques and drama games in pairs/small groups.

There is no expectation for attendees to ‘perform’ or role play during the course, and they will leave with tried-and-tested techniques and approaches as well as music, lesson plans, and activity ideas to put into practice immediately.
