About the Book

Teachers looking for practical ways to incorporate art, drama, dance and creative writing into their primary curriculum will be inspired by this activity-based book, divided into ten themed areas such as colour, materials, history, poems, and the rainforest.

For each theme there are four clearly explained hands-on sessions, in art, drama, dance and writing, designed for ages 4-11.

Each theme's educational value is discussed and fully supported by:

  • the relevant National Curriculum links
  • materials and equipment needed
  • how to run the activity
  • tips and troubleshooting.

This book dispels the mystery surrounding art, drama, dance and creative writing teaching for the non-specialist and offers additional ideas for teachers already confident in these areas. It is a valuable resource which can be referred to time and time again for fresh inspiration and ideas. It includes a range of photocopiable material for direct use in the classroom, illustrated by the author and her father.
