On Fridays, we held the drama class with selected P3 to P6 students. The students were enthusiastic and energetic. They were taking on roles on their own and exploring different ways of expressing them. This year’s drama performance was “The Last Wolf”. It involved a flock of feathered animals, insects and animals that break into song, dance and occasional comedy. The backdrop and costumes were created by the actors. The students worked hard on delivering their roles with appropriate tone and body language, and the experience nurtured not only their creativities but also their confidence in stage performance, drama and English.

Activity: English Drama Lesson
This year, our school continued to offer the English drama education. Dramatic activity is already a natural part of most children’s lives before they start school in the form of make-believe play, enabling them to make sense of their own identity by exploring meaningful fictional situations that have parallels in the real world. Students who are challenged by reading and writing (including those with English as a second language) often respond more positively to the imaginative and multi-sensory learning offered by drama.
Drama gives children opportunities to explore, discuss and deal with difficult issues and express their emotions in a supportive environment. It enables them to explore their own cultural values and those of others, past and present. It encourages them to think and act creatively, thus developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can be applied in all areas of learning.
Activity: English Speaking Competition
