In this programme, which focuses on a history lesson about Florence Nightingale, this can be seen in action as drama not only helps in developing literacy rates, it also personalises the learning for every child.

Clare, the headteacher, and her class comment on the various elements of lesson including role-plays acted out by the pupils.

The lesson illustrates the effectiveness of a cross-curricular, inclusive approach towards history, while touching on the challenges this can bring for both teachers and pupils.
