The KS3 drama curriculum has been carefully designed to inspire creativity and to raise the aspirations of our students. Each lesson provides opportunities for students to make and understand theatre, recognising it as a practical art form in which ideas and meaning are communicated to an audience through choices of form, style and convention. The students explore three main theatrical areas: Character Development, Physical Theatre and Scripted Text. Some of the skills and knowledge students will explore and understand are:
The social, cultural and historical context of theatre scripts, themes and/or a range of stimuli.
Working collaboratively to generate, develop and communicate ideas.
Develop vocal and physical interpretations of a range of characters.
Contribute as an individual to a theatrical performance.
Analyse and evaluate the process of creating live theatre.
