Here isa litle bit of information about what the children will be upto within the classes as wellas in the saturday academy. Drama Inspired by the film crew that came in last term to film the children, we decided to do things a little differently this term. The students have worked very hard and created their own piece of work, a very imaginative story line and script, which will have parents biting at the bit, they have learned a lot from this experience and allowing they imagination to flow has proved to be a huge confidence boost for them, as they are very proud of this piece of work, it's also something they can show to friend and teacher at school. I'd like to thank their wonderful teacher Sophia for all her support with this project. Musical Theatre We have been working alongside dance this term to create some amazing pieces from Matilda, Katie has worked on technique, stage presence, emotions and lots more. The children are really excited to show their work to parents at the end of term. Dance We have touch on many different styles of dance this term it can get quite boring for the students if doing the same thing every term, so we try to mix it up a little with the pieces, as we have been working on some theatrical pieces the children have worked on the emotion within their dancing, and how to portray that to an audience, so again understand what the song is about and projecting that through the movement, some of the piece this term are extremely emotional as the children have out done themselves. Gradings In and amongst all this we have been working with students going for their gradings. We follow our syllabus all year round so it makes it a little easier and as daunting, it's also a great way of showing them just how much they have learn whilst being at the academy. The higher grades and models are equivalent to GCSE and can help with UCAS points. We are proud of our 100% success, we work very hard with the children to make sure they are ready, this includes little mock exams to prepare and lots more as you can imagine, especially breathing techniques for nerves. (grades are optional) Master Class Physical Theatre/Stage Combat We have organise a specialist to come into the academy for the full day to train the students in stage combat. What is stage combat?
