This is a unit of work for KS2 pupils to use drama to explore the stories behind newspaper headlines.
It focuses on creating story, looking at pivotal moments, exploring character and feelings, reporting, representing and recording news items.
The scheme is presented as one long unit but can easily be divided into shorter lessons.
Drama methods include freezes, improvisation, interviews, hotseating and presentations. The scheme is also great for prompting further creative writing activities.
