This is an exciting book. Exciting in many ways. Firstly, it is hugely heartening to find learning through drama being presented in such an accessible and lively way that teachers cannot fail to want to try out the ideas. For too long now the arts have failed to take their rightful place " at the centre of the curriculum. At last the energy has come full circle; and here are the experts, Sharon and Paul, offering a fabulous resource to enable all Foundation and KS1 teachers to re-energise their teaching. Yet thankfully this is no quick fix recipe of ideas " it is an extremely thoughtful, erudite, well worked-out, cross-curricular resource. The authors have thought through every angle that any teacher, whatever their experience and background, would possible want explored. The authors are obviously excellent practitioners, which means the ideas are tried, tested and incredibly workable.
I cannot recommend the book highly enough. It is exactly what creative, concerned teachers are looking for.
