Performing Arts KS3

The umbrella of Performing Arts covers a wide range of areas, from dance and drama to set and costume design. In Key Stage 3 we cover all areas within lesson time leaving you to choose a specialism in Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. Building confidence and independence is particularly important in Performing Arts.

Throughout Key Stage 3 we look at the areas of performing and developing as well as appreciation and evaluation. Pupils are expected to work in groups and co-operate with others to create finished performances linking to set texts, current affairs and age appropriate topics. They are encouraged to perform, however, other areas of set design, lighting and prop making can also be explored. Drama techniques will be established but other performance areas such as dance can also be developed.
