S3/S4 Drama skills
Pupils will be given the opportunity to develop a performance. They will work in groups to discuss and use a range of drama skills to portray characters.
Production skills : Pupils will work practically to learn about the different production skills required to stage a piece of theatre.
Performance : The purpose of the performance unit is to enable learners to draw on, extend and apply the skills, knowledge and understanding they have gained during the course. To be successful in this subject pupils must commit to performing, in a small group, in front of an audience. This will be recorded and marked. Pupils will specialise in one of the production areas.
