Halstead

Preparatory School for Girls

Drama

We are extremely proud of our Drama. Our priority is to instil confidence and encourage the growth of an individual’s personality and talents.

Throughout the academic year lessons are delivered by a Drama specialist whose expertise aids the development of self-esteem and confidence.

Years 4-6 are given opportunities to see live performances and take regular trips to local theatre venues to see an array of captivating drama and dance performances. In school pupils take part in regular specialist workshops.

All the girls in the School tread the boards throughout the year on our purpose built stage. Nursery and Reception girls present the annual Nativity play and Year 1 and 2 girls present a Christmas musical production. Years 3 and 4 take part in a Spring term production and Years 5 and 6 perform in the Summer Term. Drama lessons for pupils in Years 3 to 6 are planned specifically around the production process which culminates into a musical production spectacular!

In Drama we support and consolidate the high standard of learning through the teaching of cross-curricular themes. Much of the emphasis in lessons is on having great fun whilst learning and teaching the skills and techniques that play such a vital role in preparing a child for life.

Our most recent musical productions were Around The World In 80 Minutes and The Wizard of Oz.
