Drama

Update: 12/05/2020 - Curriculum statement for 01/06/20 - 17/06/20

Years 7 and 8

Both year 7 and year 8 will be looking at Putting on a Performance this half term. They will be given the choice of choosing a production or working from some given examples. Once they have chosen a production they will explore all the different tasks that go in to producing a full scale production. This will include casting it, designing the set and costume, promoting it then finally reviewing a potential performance.

The aim of the tasks is to highlight the work and different skills that are needed when planning a production.

Years 9 and 10

Both years 9 and 10 will be looking at a key part of the GCSE assessment, live theatre evaluation. Section B of the written exam, that the students will sit in year 11, will require them to answer two questions on a piece of theatre that they have seen. We have been given a link to a recording of the play “Teechers” performed by a professional group, Blackeyed Theatre Company. Students will be required to watch this performance* and make notes on the acting and design elements they see. Once this has been watched they will need to organise their notes and then create a separate set of notes of no more than 500 words. These 500 words are notes they will be able to take in to the exam.

The students will then have examples of questions from exam papers that they will need to answer. They will also have a copy of the marking criteria so that they can assess their own work.

*If they cannot access this performance they can watch another on YouTube by searching live theatre or National Theatre Live or The Show Must Go On. As a last resort they could use a film but this will not be allowed for the final exam.


Update : 20/04/2020

Year 7

Over this half term year 7 will be looking at the history of drama and theatre with regards to how and why masks were used in early theatre. Students will start by looking at the characters that they feel are shown through masks then move on to creating their own character. Once this is done they will design and make their own mask to use in a performance.

Year 8

Over this half term year 8 will be looking at their use of voice when performing a script. They will start by exploring their own voice and how it works, being sure to make it clear when performing. They will then move on to a selection of different scripts over the weeks with thought given as to how they would perform them. The work is finished with students working on their own scripted performance either by themselves or with another person.

Years 9 and 10

Over this half term years 9 and 10 will be looking at how they will be using subject specific drama terminology in their written work. This is a very important piece of work as it will prepare them for the written tasks in the coursework and written exam. In order to achieve the higher marks for GCSE drama students need to use key drama words in their work correctly. Students have a document to complete that has a different focus each week. They will look at drama techniques, styles, technical words for lighting, sound and set as well as other key words.

PE 

Updated: 13/05/2020

Core PE Years 7 - 11.

Students should currently be enjoying the sunshine and doing a module of athletics in PE lessons. As this isn’t possible, and athletics often requires specialist equipment we are recommending that students try to undertake as much physical activity as they can. This is not only for physical health but also for mental health benefits. As the government have now lifted restrictions on the amount of outdoor exercise you can do it’s important to keep active.

Any form of cardiovascular exercise would be beneficial to health. This is anything that raises heart rate and breathing rate. This could include activities like walking, jogging, cycling and skipping. Of course continue to abide by social distancing rules to stay safe.

You can also try the following links and video’s if you want to exercise at home:

This site offers video’s to get your daily dose of exercise.
