DRAMA teachers were given a lesson in behaving like a child in a special seminar.

To prepare for the new term, drama teachers at Helen O'Grady Drama Academy, in Bromley and West Kent, were put in the position of a child in one of their own classes.

Helen Walls, principal at Bromley and West Kent, said feelings such as anticipation, shyness or cheeky naughtiness were re-enacted by all those involved.

She said: "The seminar gave everyone renewed insight into how best to deliver our programme to children.

"By experiencing the lesson themselves, they will be more sensitive about how the children feel in their classes."

The academy specialises in building confidence, self-esteem and communication skills through a carefully constructed, progressive drama programme.
