Drama is celebrated and practised at Silverwood School as a discrete subject and as an inclusive, inspiring classroom activity which enhances all areas of the curriculum through the immersive, multi-sensory learning opportunities it offers. Our ambitious Drama Curriculum enables learners to develop their creativity, their self-confidence and their collaborative skills through games, stories, performance and reflection. It provides a safe space in which pupils can interact with each other while exploring situations, emotions and relationships; through this exploration the pupils develop empathy with others and confidence in themselves.
Learners are supported to develop healthy use of body and voice, individually and with a group. Performance projects are designed to enable students to take joint ownership of their work, fostering skills in cooperation, negotiation and mutual support and providing each young person with a very special sense of well-being, belonging and achievement.
