Jumpstart! Drama contains more than forty engaging, practical, easy-to-do and highly motivating drama activities which will appeal to busy primary teachers who wish to enliven their practice and make more use of drama in line throughout their teaching.

Suitable for use across a variety of subjects and for a wide range of learning styles, the book introduces teaching practitioners to a range of drama conventions and demonstrates how to use them in the primary classroom. Organised in five clear parts, this new edition of Jumpstart! Drama covers the following topics:

  • The relationship and link between drama and literacy
  • Analysing both fiction and non-fiction texts through drama conventions
  • Exploring poetry through drama conventions
  • Developing role play and learning through imaginary worlds

With all activities connected to well-known texts, this fully updated second edition now reflects picturebooks and novels published in the last five years, and is ideal for busy primary teachers who wish to encourage their pupils in drama using texts in a dramatic and motivating way.
