Linking drama across the curriculum
Drama is uniquely placed as a subject taught across all areas of the school curriculum. Used as a creative platform to enable, enrich and enliven subjects from Maths to History or PSHE. Children relish opportunities to explore their imagination and capability for play through Drama.
In French, pupils perform short conversations, recite poems and short plays both to the whole school community and our partnered school in France.
In History, children may collaborate to act in or film a re-enactment of famous historical events. Drama enables children to immerse themselves and imagine the personal experiences of those living during historically important times. Through whole school performance, class assemblies and creative projects, Drama is a creative catalyst that helps bring the curriculum to life.
Recent highlights include a re-enactment of the journeys made by pilgrims in The Canterbury Tales; a visit to an ancient farm where children became Celtic villagers for the day; an exploration of The Golden Hinde in role as Francis Drake and his crew of privateers; a retelling of Beowulf that featured a 20 foot monster; a reenacting of the Pied Piper that took place across the school.
