Performing Arts News

The Performing Arts room has been turned into all kinds of locations and filled with all sorts of characters whenever the Year 4 boys have been around this term. They have been immersed in a drama unit and have been considering and experimenting with ways in which to use movement and voice to build the action of drama. Many of our activities have been improvised, with the boys using some meditation techniques to visualise their actions before jumping into a scene. The boys have truly had to be thinkers and develop not only awareness of themselves in space, but also awareness of others. To visitors from outside, it may seem a little chaotic, but the boys have shown incredible focus and dedication to their roles! Here is a photo from a warm up activity where the boys had to bend, stretch and shape themselves into melting candles!
