The Pre – Primaries
In the second half of Term One the Pre-Primary children have been building a variety of drama skills including listening and responding skills, developing verbal and movement skills via “Acting Out” several different stories – including one to music, participating in a variety of speech and breathing exercises as well as learning to become more spatially and audience aware. Here the children can be seen; Participating in a space awareness activity, “acting out” a tale about a boy and a dog called “Dogger” and portraying different sea creatures in a short story set to music.
The Year One children are continuing to have fun developing their drama skills. They have been participating in role-play, speech and movement activities as well as small group and whole class improvisations. Here the children can be seen; Participating in a whole class improvisation about a Sand Sculpture Competition and another play about a day out at an imaginary boat harbour, rehearsing a short scene which they created and performed in pairs and opening a birthday present in a role-play activity.
