Drama is taught in all year groups at Spratton as a timetabled subject. The drama teaching aims to develop children’s confidence and creativity while learning more about themselves and the world around them.
In Drama all pupils have opportunities to create, perform and respond to their own and each other’s performances. Group discussion is encouraged which allows pupils to explore issues and ideas together and to appreciate the differing opinions of others. Pupils learn to create and sustain roles and to speak with confidence in a range of contexts, developing awareness of an audience.
Through the Drama curriculum, pupils experience many different genres including mime, dramatic play, improvisation, prose, poetry and scripts of various styles. There are visits to the theatre and workshops in school held by visiting theatre groups throughout the year.
