In Drama, our pupils experience a mix of styles in order to develop a comprehensive drama vocabulary as they become increasingly aware of all aspects of performance, building on this knowledge from Reception through to the end of Year 6.
Drama lessons include the more formal speaking and listening skills while 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.
In Dance, pupils will actively rehearse and refine movement material, identifying their individual strengths and areas for improvement. Pupils will develop their understanding of choreographic devices and create movement material in response to set stimulus in duos, trios and quartets. Children will learn to identify, describe and explain the necessary physical and interpretive skills for dance performance.
Dramatic opportunities exist for all pupils within class assemblies and musical or stage productions. These performances frequently include opportunities for children to showcase their individual talents and build their confidence on the stage as well as experience in working as a team towards a shared ideal.
