Drama

In Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6), all students are taught a drama lesson once a week by a drama specialist. These lessons are designed to complement the children's learning in the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) while developing a foundation of expressive movement and drama techniques to develop their confidence and skills of collaboration, communication and creative thinking.

Shared overall aims across drama lessons are:

  1. to enable children to use and understand basic drama skills and terminology

  2. to develop their ability to tell stories both individually and collaboratively

  3. to develop social skills of communication, negotiation and collaboration

  4. to learn to think critically and problem-solve creatively

  5. to enable the children to make links between the make-believe world and reality

  6. to use drama to further develop their understanding of their IPC curriculum

Drama in Enrichment

Primary students also take part in the curriculum enhancement programme whereby they have a range of activities they can enter into over the year. Performing Arts options include activities such as Creative Dance, Drama, Set Design, the Year 4 Production and the Year 6 Production (which are rehearsed during the curriculum enrichment sessions).
