Course Content:

In Year 7, students will be introduced to a number of drama techniques.  They will be expected to adopt and sustain a role within a variety of situations and begin to evaluate their own work and that of others.  Students will be introduced to a range of resources in their lessons to help them develop an understanding of theatre.  These include: stage lighting, music, props, and stage blocks.  Over the year, students will explore a range of themes originating from different sources including music, play texts, pictures and poetry. Students are also offered an opportunity to visit the theatre.  As part of the follow up work to this visit, students will complete a theatre review. There is a summative assessment at the end of each half term. The assessment will take the form of a practical lesson in which the students are assessed on all four areas of the assessment criteria.

Autumn 1 –The Circus. A practical exploration around the themes of family, teamwork and overcoming obstacles. Students are introduced to the basic skills in Drama.

Autumn 2 – Amadora. The exploration of a fictitious village taking the decision to leave their home as they are struck down by a drought. Students will encounter more whole group activities allowing them to develop group work skills. During this half term students will also be taken to see a performance at a theatre and will be expected to write a theatre review on the production.

Spring 1 – Darkwood Manor – Students are introduced to a number of different characters and explore a haunted manor. During this scheme of work students will develop an understanding of how to create atmosphere on the stage.

Spring 2 – Curious Incident – This scheme of work aims to help students to develop an understanding of the famous novel.  

Summer 1 - Theseus and the Minotaur – Students will explore the Greek Myth and put themselves in the shoes of different characters. During this scheme of work students will develop a basic understanding of the ideas of status.

Summer 2 – Romeo and Juliet – Students will find themselves immersed in the world of William Shakespeare as they explore this key text. This will also be a joint project with the English department.

Course Text Books/Websites:

There is no specific text book for this course.

Additional Materials/Equipment required:

Year 7 students will have the opportunity to go to the theatre to help them develop an appreciation of the art form.  Students will also have the opportunity to create their own theatre by joining the Academy Young Players (Drama Club) or auditioning for the School Production.

Home Support:

Encourage your son/daughter to become involved in all of the different drama projects on offer.  Belonging to a local library is important as some homework will involve first hand research into different subjects areas.  Parents can help by taking students to see a variety of theatre events.
