All of the students seem to be loving this term and we are looking forward to some great performances at upcoming assemblies and parent watching week!
Speak Up Speech and Drama classes provide a safe environment for students to challenge themselves without feeling embarrassed or afraid of making a mistake. Drama games and improvisation are fun activities that allow students to stand up and present themselves without the pressure and hype of a “performance.”
Learning to speak well is one of the first steps to improving confidence and communication skills – every Speak Up Speech and Drama class includes some vocal training as well as the opportunity for students to practice eye contact, concentration and listening skills.
Creating drama, inventing characters and telling stories are integral parts our classes. We incorporate a wide range of poetry and prose to engage and inspire students and regularly use arts and craft activities to create special props, costumes, or puppets, which the children use in performances.
Show and tell, or show and share, is usually the first opportunity young children have to stand up in front of a small group and speak. Whether this opportunity starts when they are in kindergarten or once they start primary school, it is a wonderful introduction to public speaking as they are often given the option of speaking about a topic they know wellLearn more

Just wanted to tell you that my son, who normally has one story for the day if that, talked all the way home about his drama lesson. He has a friend over from school too, but all he talked about was how much fun his morning was. He read the poem and talked about how he has to do a poem about dolphins next
Nathan had his first trial lesson yesterday with lovely Ellie. She has so much energy and brings a lot of charisma and charm to the class. I wanted to join in!!! It looks to be a wonderful program.
She has really enjoyed the last two terms, and I would like to thank for the experience that she has had – singing and dancing 100% appeal to an 11 year old, and she has really loved it. I also thoroughly enjoyed your enthusiasm at the performance last term, no wonder the children enjoy the classes!
