At Mansfield Green we teach English using the Talk 4 Writing Strategy. Deeply routed within the strategy are opportunities for speaking and listening combined with drama.

We recognise the value drama has on the understanding and embedding of texts. All children throughout the Imitation element of a unit of English work will participate in drama activities.

These range from:

  • Hot seating
  • Freeze frame
  • Thought tapping
  • Slow motion
  • Thought tracking
  • Conscience alley
  • I can see…
  • Agony aunt
  • Phone a friend
  • Mime
  • Role play

Throughout the academic year children are also given the opportunity to act in class, year and key stage assemblies.
