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
- Thought tracking
- Addressing the audience
- Prepared improvisation
- Spontaneous improvisation
- Working from a simple script
