Why is Drama studied at KS3?
1) To develop social skills. These include confidence, communication, listening and team-work.
2) Drama is an art form. Students learn about the development of theatre throughout history. They also explore performance skills, such as character development, the use of voice and movement, and presenting a story to an audience.
As a tool for exploring other areas of the curriculum. Drama is an excellent way of experiencing life from another person’s viewpoint. Students are able to put themselves in someone else’s shoes, in units such as ‘Exploring Chinese History,’ and ‘Max,’ which explores the issue of bullying.
