At the end of each term HAB girls have the opportunity to write a postcard to praise someone in our school community. They do so anonymously and 'post' them to be delivered. The idea came from one of our brilliant Year 9 girls.

Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Drama

Year 9

Students have three discrete drama lessons a week where they are introduced to a variety of imaginative ways to explore and present meaning through Drama, using a range of different stimuli such as poetry, historical events, images, play text, music and artefacts. They will also be introduced to theatre practitioners and explore their approach to theatre to develop their understanding and application of style. In year 9, lessons are designed to give students an idea of the way they will be expected to work at GCSE.

Students in Year 9 are provided with Independent Work Booklets for Drama at the beginning of each term. These booklets are used to support the learning in lessons and allow the students to independently complete work alongside the classroom content. Students will also complete research tasks on the various theatre practitioners and present these to the class.

INDEPENDENT WORK

Practical:

  • Individual/pair/group devised drama
  • Monologue/duologues
  • Scripted drama extracts

Written:

  • Portfolio: Response, development and evaluation of devised drama
  • Live evaluation/review of theatre

Year 10

Students who choose drama for GCSE have the opportunity to produce and reflect upon thought-provoking drama. The chosen text is ‘The Crucible’; which they will explore practically and then they will have a written exam. In this exam (Component 1) they will also be tested on their theatrical subject knowledge as well as write an evaluation of a live piece of theatre. During Component 2 they work in groups to devise a piece of Drama using a stimulus; they will also complete a Portfolio documenting this process. Component 3 is an externally examined scripted performance, which they self-direct in pairs, threes or small groups.  They develop skills that allow them to express their ideas creatively and are asked to carefully consider what and how to communicate effectively using Drama. They will also have the opportunity to attend at least two live theatre events. The exam board studied for is AQA.

Students in Year 10 are provided with Independent Work Booklets for Drama at the beginning of term. These booklets are used to support the learning in lessons and allow the students to independently complete work alongside the classroom content. Students will also complete research tasks on the various theatre practitioners, playwrights, plays and present these to the class.

The  will study and develop their skills across three units: Unit 1 presents the students with a variety of stimuli such as poetry, historical events, images, play text, music and artefacts and then they have to devise Drama in response to the themes and ideas presented in order to convey meaning to an audience. This will culminate in a 2000 word piece of written Controlled Assessment documenting and evaluating this process. Unit 2 students explore a scripted play; the chosen text is ‘Our Country’s Good’; which they will explore practically and then they will write a 1000 Controlled Assessment documenting and evaluating this process. Unit 2 will also include a trip to see a live theatre performance and write a 2000 word evaluation of the success of the performance. Unit 3 is an externally examined devised performance, which they self-direct in groups with teacher support. They develop skills that allow them to express their ideas creatively and are asked to carefully consider what and how to communicate effectively using Drama.
