    Miss Anna Kennedy Drama Teacher

    In drama we look at the different ways that we tell people things.

    The Year 9 groups started off by looking at all the different places ideas can come from; especially when we put our minds together. We have looked at how our faces give information as well as our voices. The mask work made us use our bodies to tell stories.

    In Year 10 we have been looking at showing how people feel even when it is the opposite of what they say. We have been using still images, thought, tracking and position.

    The Year 11 pupils concentrated on their exams and made 8 minute shows to present. Then they began to have a look at 'Forum Theatre'; this is a way of helping people to look at problems and try out different solutions. The actors react differently as different solutions are tried.
