Using Drama to Teach PSHE in the Primary School

Drama provides an accessible and memorable way to learn about PSHE topics. It provides the opportunity to have real discussions and make real choices that are essential for good PSHE. By actually taking part in a scenario, as well as watching others and listening to others, we use all our senses and get a chance to apply our decisions and both watch and experience, in a safe environment, the consequences of those decisions.

  • Using the distancing effect of drama to ’teach’ and advise imaginary characters
  • Provide a safe forum for discussions and giving opinions
  • Help children make safe and appropriate choices
