London Theatres 1 Wordsearch Drama Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

London Theatres 1 Wordsearch Drama Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'London Theatres 1'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Performing Arts, Drama and Theatre Handbook

Performing Arts, Drama and Theatre Handbook

I teach in a further education college. Each year I write a general handbook of expectations for new learners across all courses. I distribute this at enrolment so that they are aware of expectations before their induction week. Here's my handbook for 2017-18. It's in Word format, so feel free to add to it etc. It might stimulate some ideas / save you some time. I have - for obvious reasons - removed any references to my place of work. Have a great new academic yea!

Taming of the Shrew and Introduction to Shakespeare for KS2/KS3

Taming of the Shrew and Introduction to Shakespeare for KS2/KS3

This is a full 4/5 Lesson Scheme focused on the Taming of the Shrew and an introduction to Shakespeare. There are a range of reading and writing tasks linked to the taming of the shrew, as well as extracts that are also attached. The first lesson is a station based lesson where learners can teach each other about life in Shakespeare's England, before going on to look at the globe theatre, before spending 2/3 lessons looking in detail at the taming of the shrew. This scheme has been taught to Y5, Y6 and Y7 learners and can be adapted to meet the needs of all learners if required.

Year 7 introduction to Drama

Year 7 introduction to Drama

This unit is designed to introduce students to Drama for the first time - there are also notes for each slide for anyone who hasn't taught Drama before / some extra thoughts and ideas from our own teaching of this unit. Please feel free to adapt it - it's completed in power point form to make it as easy to use as possible. On each slide, there is a title that tells students whether they are learning something new, developing their skills or compounding their knowledge. Most tasks are quite flexible but there is enough information in the power point to use as is. The only resource required are some post its but scraps of paper would also do. This unit assesses their ability to collaborate and make basic use of fundamental drama skills but there are chances for formative assessment in the 'summary' or 'discussion' sections. I've left lesson numbers and timings off so teachers / students can go through at their own pace but you might want to add this.

Superheroes! Assembly

Superheroes! Assembly

'Superheroes!' is one of a series of outstanding assemblies created for primary school children, which includes full script songs and prayers with a part for every child. This assembly is ready to go! ‘Superheroes’ links with many areas of the National Curriculum, including the: English, Music, Drama and PSHE spheres, with a theme that is rooted in upstanding values and is relevant to the children’s everyday lives and interests –including a healthy ‘self-esteem’ injection for all! This assembly is all about recognising the ‘superhero’ in you, giving each child the chance to shine by stating their own unique ‘superhero’ power – from amazing reading skill or artistic genius to the sports star or reliable friend. The assembly also teaches to spot the ‘superhero’ in others and to be thankful for those who support and and save us in a hundred little ways every day. There is a part for every child – whether acting, singing, dancing or leading a prayer! Plans created by an Ofsted Good/Outstanding primary school teacher – History and Drama co-ordinator – with over ten years of experience. These outstanding assemblies have consistently engaged and excited all 30 performers in class… and have even got the adults in the audience up on their feet!
