Drama

Drama

 

Drama is used as a key tool in developing oral skills, vocabulary development, building confidence and self- esteem, and as an essential tool in developing imaginative, expressive, and persuasive spoken and written language. ‘Hot seating’, and ‘response in role’ drama techniques are used in literacy lessons aid the development of speaking and listening, reading and writing skills. Imaginative role play is fundamental to developing the whole child, and we develop this through a range of curriculum opportunities to perform to wider audiences including our annual nativity and school play. There are increasing opportunities for our pupils to perform as they progress through the school. We welcome a local theatre group into school as ‘artists in residence’ for a term every year. We recognise that drama plays an important part in developing resilience and confidence.
