21TRA575 Lights, Camera, Action: Practical Strategies for Drama in the Primary Classroom






Date:          Monday, 29 November, 2021
Time:          3.30 pm to 4.30 pm
Location:   Zoom Webinar

Curiosity and wonder are essential elements of inquiry. In the midst of critical climate crisis, there are many global issues needing to be solved. To address these issues we need people to be curious, to ask questions, seek answers and create solutions. Children’s engagement with issues like climate change may be first kindled by finding magic and wonder in their own local places. Underpinned by the idea “We need to know a place if we are to value it”, local inquiry is about asking what this place is like, and why?
Fieldwork is a way of immersing children in their surroundings; of exploring the ‘outdoor classroom’ of their local environment (whether natural or built). An integral part of science, history and geography education, such fieldwork can also be an opportunity to develop and support inquiry-based learning, and to connect children with their immediate locality. It is this connection that will lead to transformative action and new ways of being in the world.
In this Webinar Sandra and Alan will explore ways of giving children opportunities to have a voice and activate change in their local area.
