DRAMA CURRICULUM INTENT
“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” Oscar Wilde
Creativity, empathy and cooperation are the foundation to our Drama curriculum, providing the starting point for students to explore theatre. The Toot Hill Drama team aim to offer students the opportunity to create, experiment, perform and evaluate a wide range of theatrical styles and genres, as well as building their cultural knowledge and appreciation of theatre and performance.
Through Drama skills, activities and experiences, we want our students to creatively explore the world around them; what has gone before, what the future may bring and what is happing right now. We want them to understand others’ points of view, life situations and choices and to consider alternative approaches that maybe beyond their every-day knowledge.
Students will develop their knowledge of theatrical devices and vocal and physical skills, as well as exploring the technical side of theatre through lighting, sound, set and costume design. Performances and rehearsals will be intrinsic to students study of theatre.
