Key Stage 3

At OIAMFS we are committed to developing the creative element of our students and Performing Arts through Drama at Key Stage 3. In Drama, we focus on developing confidence, communication, co-operation and concentration. The work done in these lessons also supports the Key Stage 3 English curriculum.

Lessons are varied and may be skills based or thematic in approach. There is a strong emphasis on working together in pairs and groups. Students learn how to shape a piece of drama, build convincing characters and communicate a story to an audience.

Throughout the Key Stages we work on:

The use of voice, space and body language including:

  • Freeze frame
  • Mime
  • Thought tracking
  • Monologues
  • Addressing the audience
  • Soundscapes
  • Prepared improvisation
  • Spontaneous improvisation
  • Working from a simple script
  • Flashback
