Key Stage 3
In Drama we focus on developing confidence, communication,cooperation and concentration. The work done in these lessons also supports the Key Stage 3 English curriculum.
Lessons are varied and may be skills based or thematic in approach. There is a strong emphasis on working together in pairs and groups.
Students learn how to shape a piece of drama, build convincing characters and communicate a story to an audience.
Throughout the key stage we work on:
- The use of voice, space and body language
- Freeze frame
- Thought tracking
- Addressing the audience
- Prepared improvisation
- Spontaneous improvisation
- Working from a simple script
We offer RSL qualifications at key stage four, and all pupils are invited to be a part of our performance opportunities in school and in the wider community.
