Developing skills for life

8/23/2017 10:41 AM

At Pyjama Drama our emphasis is on role play and imagination, not performance. Although in many children we see the blossoming of a lifelong love of drama, we're not deliberately setting out to teach the children to be actors and performers. Drama, pretending and role play are some of the most instinctive things that children so has many, many benefits. At Pyjama Drama our emphasis is clear - developing skills for life!

I've just arrived home after a whirlwind week in Malaysia where I delivered Pyjama Drama to over a hundred different children. Wow, what a week.

3rd February 2014

Everyone knows someone who is great at telling stories. Maybe it’s Granddad who can keep the family entertained for hours at a time or your best friend who can turn a random event into a rip-roaring story that has you in fits of laughter. But how often do we think of ourselves as storytellers, even though something we do every day?
