Stories have been exclusively used as the target of reading in national language education in Japan. However, experiencing a story through drama can also have some benefits. In the UK, this kind of activity has developed; they have conventions such as still image and hot-seating, and they use situations that are not directly written in the original text. A drama lesson conducted by an experienced teacher in a primary school in London is analyzed in this paper. The lesson prompts the understanding of the story by immersing children in a fictitious world. It improves the skills of speaking and listening by setting up an authentic situation where the skills are used. It also helps to develop reading and writing skills; writing activities using the story situation were conducted by a class teacher after the lesson.
