Drama Scene Planning Sheet

Drama Scene Planning Sheet

I use this sheet at the beginning of scene work to remind students what their scene should look like and what to include. Although I’ve mainly used this resource with Year 6-8 students, I’m sure it could be used for younger and older with some adapting. Feel free to use, adapt, change whatever suits your needs. I hope it helps!

Film Making Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Drama Theatre

Film Making Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Drama Theatre

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Film Making’. 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!

Comedy Sketch Script Title: THE POLITICALLY-CORRECT FOOTBALL HECKLER (BULLY)

Comedy Sketch Script Title: THE POLITICALLY-CORRECT FOOTBALL HECKLER (BULLY)

This 3-page sketch about a politically-correct heckler at a football game is perfect for older middle school and all high school kids. The heckler insults the player for his lack of skills then quickly follows up with a politically correct statement pertaining to the insult! Being a huge fan of comedy, I have studied the greatest sketches of Saturday Night Live, MAD TV, Key and Peele, Monty Python, Hugh and Laurie, The Three Stooges, Groucho Marx, and the kids’ comedy sketch show All That. Charlie Chaplin said “A day without laughter is a day wasted” so I want to pass on the love of comedy and humor to students. These sketches are fresh, witty, sarcastic, and mixed with slapstick humor and are intended to strengthen students’ drama and theater skills while enjoying humor. I ask you to please provide feedback on what you liked/disliked, and suggestions for improvement! I plan to write many, many more but would like to see what the response is first. The roles (6 minimum) in this particular sketch are: Referee with a whistle Quarterback Heckler (Bully) wearing a baseball hat Announcer 2 security officials Other football players (optional) Please contact me if you would like to record and publish your interpretation of any of these sketches and I would be very happy to work with you! Editable MS Word Doc. This lesson is student-centered, meaning: –it allows you to become a facilitator! –happier teachers! –happier students! –happier administrators!

Primary Drama: Getting ready for the transition to Secondary School - Homework Sucks!

Help your Year 6 students make the transition to Secondary School by downloading and running this lesson exploring the role of homework and the importance of meeting deadlines through Drama. At Secondary School, students often find homework an issue. From their time at Primary students will be familiar with homework but they will not be prepared for the amount of homework they will be set or the consequences of not completing their homework. This lesson uses Drama to help Year 6 students learn about the role of homework in Secondary School and how important it is to keep up with deadlines. You can easily differentiate the resource or split it up into different activities to be used alongside your own planning and resources.
