    I will be taking a KS2 class for a couple of days and have to do some drama in their literacy time. I wonder if anyone could suggest some stand alone ideas/themes that I could develop.

    This is a good resource-http://improvencyclopedia.org/.Split them into groups and get them to perform the games to the rest of the class. At KS2 don't get to complicated.You could also do some stuff on freeze frames and status-think about levels i.e. sitting, standing, lying down and how they present an effective tableau. Concentrate on showing more than verbal.If you do a devised piece limit them to a small amount of words that they can use in the piece.

    Thankyou,
    that really is a very good website that I had not come across before. Full of really good ideas.

    I hope you find some better suggestions than the nightmare Drama cover lesson I was left for a Y9 group on one notable occasion; "Continue practising your drama piece on the subject of street violence". If I ever cross paths with the teacher responsible for that I'll practice a piece on the subject of street violence with him/her ;-)

    Thanks Crusell, I took several ideas from that website, adapted them for KS2 and the children really enjoyed doing them.
    Wow Magic, that would be one lesson I would want to miss - one where you hope if you pinch yourself you would find you were only dreaming. That teacher must have been having a laugh or saving the lesson for the next supply victim!
