IN addition to building social and communication skills overall, involvement in drama and performance has been shown to improve pupils’ self-esteem.
The act of performing can help pupils recognise their potential for success and improve their confidence while catering to different styles of learning and engaging pupils who might not otherwise take significant interest in academics.

In the last term, Grade 2 pupils put on a musical performance, Dumble the Dinosaur, Grade 3 pupils held a theatre supper with a rendition of Rumpus in the Rainforest and Grade 4 and Grade 5 pupils acted in a Roald Dahl presentation of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Taking on the role of another character gives pupils the opportunity to play through and experience the life of another in a comfortable and safe environment while learning to trust their ideas and abilities as individuals. Most importantly, drama is fun and makes learning active and hands on.
