Royal Russell offer a variety of exciting and engaging drama activities
We create a safe environment where all pupils, from the very shy to the extroverted, feel comfortable taking creative risks. Our dynamic teachers facilitate a variety of activities and projects.
Lessons include short “student-created” scenes including improvisation activities, lessons on specific drama skills, theatre games, music and movement, literature, and extension activities. Lessons often culminate in a final performance of student-led assemblies, performances, and shows. Drama offers students performance skills that improve their knowledge and help them gain confidence. These sessions are regular and students work towards gaining essential skills in speaking verse and prose, reading for performance, public speaking, acting, drama and mime.
Throughout the year there are opportunities to take part in public performances and theatre trips. These opportunities often help less-confident pupils in building confidence and improving their social skills. Moreover, students also develop better relationships with peers through role-play learning, theatre, and mime that drama class offers.
