In S1 and S2 Drama the learners work through thematic units such “Whodunnit?” “Radio Play” and “Haunted House” and develop their skills through a series of practical tasks all linked to subject based learning and terminology which they will use as they progress through their learning in Drama.
As learners move into S3 Drama they will continue to work on thematic units of work but gradually begin to learn more focused skills and terminology to help prepare them for the senior phase and their National Qualifications.
