In S1 Drama learners explore and develop a variety of skills. Each unit develops transferable skills such as communication, problem solving, team work, confidence and creativity. Alongside this we develop subject specific skills and knowledge in characterisation, use of voice and movement, performance skills and use of light, sound, set, costume and props to enhance performance. In each piece of work pupils will spend time creating (exploring and rehearsing), presenting (performing to an audience) and evaluating (their own work and the work of others)
Unit 1 – Team Building and Expectations.
Unit 2 – Mime.
Unit 3 – Role play and Production Skills.
Unit 4 – Script Work and Production Skills.
In S3 we build on and revisit the skills from S1 and further enhance knowledge and understanding of creating, presenting and evaluating.
Unit 1 – Who Dunnit?
