Drama at St. Francis draws upon each child’s interests, experience and cultural background. We are concerned with the Drama process, performance and good experiences of ‘theatre’.
Our main aims are:
- To give all children the opportunity to develop their personality and their powers of imagination and communication.
- To foster confidence, social awareness and the creative potential present in all children.
- To enable children to develop a sense of audience.Through Drama children may explore all areas of curriculum –
historical topics, social issues, biographical accounts etc. We value the Drama process as a resource to be used whenever the opportunity arises.
Our approach to Drama includes the following techniques:
- Drama games
- Role play
- Class assemblies
- Christmas plays
- Puppets and masks
- Styled Drama
- Movement and mime
