Ten Ways to Use Drama to Develop Speaking and Listening Skills

The use of speech to develop writing or comprehension skills is a great way to both motivate children not just in literacy lessons but across the whole primary curriculum.

  • Telling stories
  • Communicating in a range of formal and non-formal contexts
  • Presentation skills
  • Building confidence in a range of vocabulary

About this INSET

The use of speaking and listening skills not only helps us communicate our ideas to the world, but effective verbal communication is also essential for a successful career. 

In this training, we will look at:

  • Practical speaking and listening activities that you can use in the classroom tomorrow. 
  • Presentation skills and activities that develop ‘professional’ vocabulary and build confidence for all children.
  • Speaking and listening activities that can be used to develop vocabulary in any subject. 

This course is appropriate for primary schools.

  • Class teachers or SLT
  • English leads/coordinators
  • KS1 and KS2
