Abstract

This article focuses on the delivery of two primary English workshops delivered on the BA Primary (with QTS) degree course to first year trainees studying in the School of Education at University of Brighton. These interactive sessions include practical activity, specifically drama, and are typically delivered on campus. This is a significant point for our first-year students in primary teacher education as they explore challenging texts through drama, positioning themselves as learners in the primary classroom. Transformative learning occurs as aspiring teachers negotiate their previous experiences of drama and develop their understanding of it as a tool for the classroom. This article, a jointly composed reflection upon adapted practice during the Covid 19 pandemic, considers how drama (as a practical, interactive pedagogical tool) was delivered and engaged with in digital form. Feedback was gathered through informal interviews to collate student and tutor perspectives on the experience.
