Key Stage 3 Drama

Whether devising a tableau, machine, an abstract representation of a poem, or swearing a la Shakespeare, all students in Years 7-9 have participated enthusiastically in our bi-weekly Drama lessons. It has become the favourite lesson for many.
  • Teacher at the drama lesson
  • Student lying on floor, writing
  • students and teacher collaborate
  • Fun at drama lesson

We began the year with a day of workshops from the visiting Playtime Theatre troupe and we haven’t looked back since!

Some of the exciting activities students have enjoyed this year include:

  • choreographing and performing a dance sequence for A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Year 7)
  • devising and performing our own love potion stories using A Midsummer Night’s Dream as inspiration (Year 8)
  • performing lines and extracts from A Midsummer Night’s Dream to examine power and control (Year 9)
  • devising and performing soundscapes to capture a poem’s tone or meaning
  • composing an abstract representation of poetry using symbols and key phrases

 

Not only are these activities fun, they also:

  • stimulate creativity
  • develop teamwork and collaborative skills
  • improve speaking skills in a variety of different contexts
  • encourage risk-taking
  • improve understanding of literature
  • develop performance skills
  • improve the appreciation and evaluation of performances
  • develop reflective thinking

 

What are students saying about our lessons?  Here’s a sampling of a few reflections:

"I really liked that we improvised the text, like real actors, just using the key words."

Year 9

"I think we did well as a class because we had people sitting, standing and doing many different movements which added depth and variety into the story."

Year 8

"I think we cooperated well to create these sounds and echoes for the soundscape to create a very stormy and depressing feeling. I liked what one other group did – the heartbeat and lines to give an uncomfortable feeling gave us goosebumps as we listened to it."

Year 8

"I am very proud of myself for coming up with an original gesture, but also I am proud of my friend who tends to be shy at times but wasn’t today."

Year 8

"I learned how creative people are when you give them even 15 minutes."

Year 8
