Both Year 6 classes have just started an ambitious drama project that we are staging along with our friends from Southwark Playhouse. This is a major piece of work that will focus and reflect on the idea of personal challenges. Through using drama we are hopeful that the Year 6 pupils will be able to recognise the personal strength that they have to be able to deal with ay potential problem.
Our first session started with some basic warm up games. We then introduced the idea of freeze frame drama. We asked two pupils to freeze a certain situation – a teacher and a pupil. A third pupil then replaced one of the actors, this time taking on a different role in a different setting. We somehow managed to move from a classroom situation to pre-historic monsters!
A great first start with plenty of potential as this project continues through until early in the new year.
