Key Stage 3

Year 8

The focus in year 8 is developing knowledge and acquiring techniques that will be crucial for GCSE Drama.  Drama at Hylands School is structured termly by process based around learning essential skills and discipline needed at GCSE level. This is explored and communicated through a range of explorative strategies and stimuli; each term with a different focus. Schemes of work are set and underpinned by a strong appreciation of Drama history and analysis, specialist subject vocabulary and literacy, home learning and discussion.

The curriculum is:

• Murder Mystery

• Woman in Black

• Exploration of Strategies

• Physical Theatre / Non Naturalism

•Practitioner Workshops / Performance
