DRAMA and Theatre Studies
Drama and Theatre Studies enables learners to enhance essential personal social skills and to explore perspectives by identifying influential social, cultural, historical and political contexts.
We plan, problem-solve and work collaboratively to investigate dramatic texts and forms of performance through theatre practitioners and commentators from a range of global cultures. Students are encouraged to evaluate critically written texts of plays and live performances from a multiplicity of genres and styles.
KS3 - Years 7-9
At Key Stage Three students will create theatre from a diverse range of stimuli and texts including plays, poetry, photographs, music, objects and articles. Learning centres and grows from the development of Explorative Strategies, Drama Mediums and Elements of Drama. There is a focus on building the skills that are associated with creating, performing and evaluating drama.
