James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dhal - some simple drama approaches

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dhal - some simple drama approaches

These simple drama strategies are suited to primary age children who have read all or part of the story of James and The Giant Peach. They can be employed in a classroom with a cleared space. They are structured to engage children in the events of the story, so they are more motivated to reflect and discuss the book. The strategies also offer opportunities for writing.
