Drama takes place every Friday throughout the year, from 3:15pm - 4:15pm. It is open to boys and girls in Years 5 and 6 and is one of our most popular extra curricular clubs. Drama is a great club if you love acting, dancing or singing but it is also a fantastic club if you are a little shy and would like to feel more confident. Each week the children take part in lots of fun drama games and then build towards their two annual performances for the school and their families (one at Christmas and one in the Summer).
"I go to Drama because I love performing. The best thing about it is working really hard all term on a play and then getting to share it with everyone when we perform." Olivia, Year 5
"I love the excitement of finding out which part I have." Lucy, Year 5
You will find details below of our current and past performances. Enjoy!
