Specialist drama lessons
As a result of a hugely successful event last November where local primary schools came to Abbot’s Hill for a variety of workshops, Ms Hollie Sparrow Head of Drama, is spending an afternoon every week teaching Year 5 at Nash Mills School. This will allow the pupils specialist teaching and further collaboration with pupils at Abbot’s Hill.
· To provide specialist teaching.
· To promote the sharing of resources.
· To promote collaboration between staff and pupils at both schools.
Come and Sing was a day of song, dance and drama that involved 90 pupils in November. This promoted further collaboration between Abbot’s Hill School and Nash Mills, resulting in a specialist drama teacher going over once a week.
Teachers' time and resources included props, scripts and music.
Year 5 pupils are given the opportunity to participate in drama lessons leading to a performance. The activities introduce them to skills including, dancing, singing, acting, working in a group, perseverance, empathy towards others to name but a few. The children will also be visiting AHS for a further day of workshops.
30 Year 5 pupils.
