Our experienced practitioners will use role-play and drama techniques to develop children culturally, emotionally, intellectually and socially.
Drama lessons can be used to deliver aspects of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) or feed into a whole school performance, which our practitioner can contribute to.
Drama lessons deliver the following attainment targets of Spoken Language – years 1-6 of the English programme of study:
Key Stage 1
Pupils will be able to:
- listen and respond appropriately to adults and their peers
- ask relevant questions to extend their understanding and build vocabulary and knowledge
- maintain attention and participate actively in collaborative conversations, staying on topic and initiating and responding to comments
- use spoken language to develop understanding through speculating, hypothesising, imagining and exploring ideas
- speak audibly and fluently with an increasing command of Standard English
- participate in discussions, presentations, performances and debates
- gain, maintain and monitor the interest of the listener(s)
- consider and evaluate different viewpoints, attending to and building on the contributions of others
- select and use appropriate registers for effective communication
All children are encouraged to have fun and express themselves. Our practitioners will focus on improving children’s self-confidence and differentiate lessons so that all pupils make progress and feel a sense of achievement. Drama supports comprehension by helping children to identify with and explore characters. Drama also gives children the opportunity to improvise scenes and develop characters to improve the quality of their writing.
We will provide schools with assessment information about pupils’ progress during PPA cover lessons and how well they have met or exceeded expected outcomes.
