Drama at Oakleigh House School
Drama and performance
Drama has a well established place in the school curriculum and is recognised as a discipline that benefits the children through the development of social skills, confidence and the advancement of performance and self-presentation skills.
All pupils from Reception to Year 6 have the benefit of a weekly drama lesson with a specialist teacher. Work in lessons is based around drama games, story telling, mime and movement, characterisation, improvisation and scripted work.
All pupils have the opportunity to perform to each other and to a wider audience.
There is a summer production for the older pupils and the annual highlight of the year is the Christmas production which involves every pupil in the school.
