Last week saw visiting UK practitioner, Louise Amos, run a series of Drama workshops for our Year 6 students focusing on their current set text ‘The Arrival’ by Sean Tan. Through a series of practical individual and group activities, the children created still images and soundscapes of an imaginary city and explored how it would feel to arrive as an immigrant in this new and exotic environment. The progress our students made within such a short time was astounding. Well done Year 6! Louise also led a professional development session for selected staff and gave our teachers a plethora of ideas to encourage the inclusion of specific Drama activities within their lessons. These workshops were organised as part of our drive this year to begin integrating the Juilliard Drama programme into our Primary curriculum.
