Drama Games - Perfect for Circle Time!
If you fancy giving a few drama games a go in your early years setting, why not start with this free pack of eight Pyjama Drama Learning games, 'Play and Learn'? If the idea of delivering a drama game with young children sounds scary, don't worry, you're not alone! Our games have been played countless times in the UK since 2005 when Pyjama Drama first began delivering drama sessions to preschool children - so we know they work.
If you've never delivered drama or tried imaginative play in your early years setting, don't give up if it doesn't go exactly to plan first time! You know as well as we do that young children love repetition, and you can play these games over and over again. So long as you're relaxed, and having fun, the children will be happy and learning without even realising it!
All the games in the pack are written with simple, step-by-step instructions, but if you have any questions at all, we're here to help, drop us an email - sometimes all you need is a bit of encouragement, and that's what we're here for!
You can also join our online support group, 'The Pyjama Drama Learning Academy' on Facebook. You'll find lots of members of the Pyjama Drama team hang out there, along with other, likeminded professionals who are sharing their experiences of using pretend play in their practice.
