We know that drama is an essential part of the curriculum. We include drama and performance throughout a child's time at St Joseph's, ensuring that all children get a chance to participate.
In non-COVID times EYFS does a Nativity play and KS1 a Christmas play. In the Spring term Year 3 does a performance and Year 4 a play linked to their topic class topic. In the summer term Years 5 and 6 do an end of year performance, this could be a musical or a play.
We have also introduced public speaking as a lesson in KS1 and KS2 to develop pupil's ability to project their voices - whether this is reading in assembly or Mass, or when they are performing on stage.
