Pupils Prepare for LAMDA Exams
Girls in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been working on LAMDA Pieces in preparation for their Acting examination, this is an individual performance on stage demonstrating use of key drama skills; body language, facial expressions, use of voice and understanding of the knowledge behind the character/s being portrayed through a question and answer session with the designated examiner.
Year 3 have stepped up to the mark this year in allowing themselves to come out of their comfort zones and tackle the very daunting prospect of performing alone on stage, remembering a full monologue and owning the stage. Many girls in Years 4, 5 and 6 have now worked through the different graded pieces and this year girls in Year 6 have taken on Grade 4 qualifications in LAMDA which is a remarkable achievement for pupils so young.
Pupils in Year 10 opted for LAMDA within their timetable again, the biggest year for numbers sitting these qualifications. All 16 girls studied the Grade 5 qualification which is equal to a GCSE. Many pupil who don't take the Drama GCSE alongside this have managed to exceed personal expectations of the understanding of the stage blocking, the use of stage configurations and grasping key knowledge and understanding on the characterisation process not for one character but two.
