Verse and Prose
Children learn poems and a section of prose from a story and recite them from memory displaying clear audibility, clarity of diction, good body language; a clear understanding of the text; correct use of punctuation and a clear sense of rhythm and shape.
Children learn two monologues taken from a play. They explore style, form, character, subtext and context to realise the demands of the text; they engage with the character and situation to create a sense of reality; they develop skills in voice, diction and movement and they are able to provide a clear understanding and knowledge of their pieces.
Pupils learn to communicate a story through song. They explore the style, form, character, subtext and context to realise the demands of the musical text; they engage with the character and situation to create a sense of reality; they develop skills in voice, diction and movement and they are able to provide a clear understanding of the content and context of their chosen songs and develop a clear understanding of technical terminology used by actors and singers.
