Arts Education: Drama provides children with ways to explore our cultural heritage and new dimensions of a changing world. Language plays a critical role in drama. The Drama Curriculum contributes to developing the child’s competence and confidence in English, Irish and other languages.
The Drama Curriculum includes just one strand. This Strand is concerned with using drama to explore feelings, knowledge and ideas, leading to understanding. It includes three stand units. These are
- Exploring and making drama
- Reflecting on drama
- Cooperating and communication in making drama.
