Drama at Derwent Lodge is an exciting part of the curriculum. It all begins in Year Three where the girls start the term getting to know each other through drama games. This culminates in a Year Three English Speaking Board presentation with every girl taking part; a rewarding, confidence building experience.

Year Four begin working on improvisation and role play in small groups. In the Lent Term they stage a musical which develops and showcases their singing and acting skills.

In Year Five the girls work on role play and improvisation in groups and pairs. This leads on to script work which prepares them for a major production in Year Six.

In Year Six the girls are extremely confident in Drama. They continue to hone their script reading skills and work on solo pieces alongside group scenarios. The girls are encouraged to express their individual personalities and often surprise themselves and their parents with their talent. All girls have an important role in their final Derwent Lodge play and work together as a cast to deliver a super production; a tribute to the hard work and enthusiasm that the girls have expressed during their time at Derwent Lodge!

There are photo albums for each play at www.flickr.com/somerhillthree/albums and DVDs that can be purchased by family and friends for the Year Four and Six productions.
