Online Junior Drama – Reception to Year 3 – Wednesday 3:45pm-4:45pm
These online drama classes are conducted via Zoom where the children will take part in drama based games and activities like pass the energy ball and miming activities or they may do various scavenger hunts each week. They are light-hearted and fun and designed to put the children at ease, build their self esteem and as there is never a ‘winner’ they make friends more easily and it helps build their confidence and creativity. We always start each session with the students telling me something positive, exciting or interesting about their week, sometimes they have to dig deep but are always helped and encouraged by myself other students and we always end the sessions with Musical Freeze which is exactly what is sounds like! As it’s not like musical statues and there is no ‘winner’ we just freeze as various characters, it adds to their feeling of confidence and positivity and of course it’s set to an uplifting song!
As every class is student led and therefore tailored to the needs of the children this is fluid.
Online Senior Drama – Year 4 to Year 6 – Friday 3:45pm to 4:45pm
This online drama class is conducted via Zoom and the children will enjoy various drama games and activities each week like ‘What are you doing’ or ‘Sorry I’m Late” where they have to come up with ridiculous excuses for being late, the more ridiculous the better! We always start each session with the students telling me something positive, exciting or interesting about their week, sometimes they have to dig deep but are always helped and encouraged by myself other students, sometimes we may even pop in a scavenger hunt to ease their frazzled brains.
Every class is different and so are the students, they may vary week to week so I may very well have a lesson planned and this could be thrown out of the window as the students could need me to steer them in a completely different direction. Because the importance and care of the students is my priority and I am an independent business I will always take the needs of the students above the rigidity of my lesson planning.
