  2. This tutorial is based upon the work of a class of eight year-old children and their teacher, Bogumila Varley, who demonstrates her own first ventures into using a drama-based approach to the primary school curriculum.
    The context is the mystery of why, in Presteigne, there is the grave of a young woman with two tombstones erected at different times and indicating a change of attitude to her life and death.

    These stones allow a language-based entry into the total primary curriculum; the children are framed as detectives researching various archives in order to solve the mystery of Mary Morgan and to publish their results.

    Through discussion of:
    a) the support materials
    b) specific lessons
    c) workers' contracts
    d) levels of attainment

    The tape indicates how each succeeding lesson engages many aspects of the primary school curriculum and demonstrates the teacher's control of the potential development towards scholarly and emotional aspects of learning.
