In Drama, our Junior pupils experience a mix of styles in order to develop a comprehensive drama vocabulary as they become increasingly aware of all aspects of performance.
Drama lessons include the more formal speaking and listening skills while these practical lessons also teach the technicalities of mime, improvisation, dilemmas and situational drama.
Pupils benefit from opportunities for creative, individual and group interaction when confidence can be developed and promoted. Performance in drama productions frequently includes an opportunity for choreography as well as experience in working as a team towards a shared ideal.
Dramatic opportunties exist for our Key Stage One and Two pupils within class assemblies and musical or stage productions. Some of our recent productions include The Treasure of Bonecrush Island (Year 6) and Splash! (Year 3 and 4).
On entry into Year 2 the children are given the option of attending LAMDA Speech and Drama lessons. LAMDA lesons help to develop sound recognition and a sense of rhythm and shape in poetry, as well as extending vocabulary and imagination through the characters and situations children encounter in the poems, prose and acting pieces.
