Resources

Eco Drama produce Classroom Activity Packs for every production and workshop. These packs are designed to enable teachers and pupils to explore the themes of the show or workshop both prior to the visit and afterwards in order to deepen learning and engagement. We also produce Resource Packs for our projects, available in hard copy at Teacher CPD events and by post.

Out to Play Resource Pack Feedback (2015 edition)

“Many thanks for sending me a copy of the “Out to Play” resource pack. I have really enjoyed reading it. The introduction re how to use the pack is very clear – especially the 5 tips for outdoor learning/storytelling. The session plans are well laid out with some great ideas/games and drama suggestions. The stories are a great balance of familiar and new – I especially liked “The Chestnut Tree at the Edge of the World” and plan to use it with some of my P4 classes soon.” Cheryl Aird, Arts Development Officer, Midlothian Council Education

Can I also let you know that we have had some extra CPD using your Out to Play pack! Staff who took part in the original training have been sharing their good practice and the resource with one another, which is great for our Outdoor Learning development!” Nicola Rooney, Corpus Christi Primary

“Teachers who have used this resource have found it well planned out, easy to follow and have found the activities to be very motivating for the children.” Andrea Gurd, Aultmore Park

With thanks to The Educational Institute of Scotland for their kind donation towards the cost of printing.
