Abstract

The Speech Bubbles intervention aims to improve children’s communication and social skills by providing them with weekly creative drama sessions. The benefit to pupils’ communication skills is also thought to have an effect on pupils’ reading skills. This is an intervention targeted at pupils with below expected communication and social skills. During the sessions trained practitioners encourage children to tell, act out and reflect on their own stories by creating a safe and playful environment, promoting children’s communication, confidence and wellbeing. This is based on the Helicopter Stories pedagogical approach.1 Speech Bubbles is part of a broader programme of work entitled ‘Learning about Culture’, which aims to improve the evidence base around arts-based education programmes. This is coordinated by the Education Endowment Foundation and the Royal Society for the Arts.2 It consists of five programmes: two in Key Stage 1 (Reception and Year 1) and three in Key Stage 2 (Year 5). Despite the unique aspects of these intervention models, there are many similarities in how they are delivered and what they hope to achieve.3
