Subject Focus: Making Drama  

1] I can use a selection of simple theatre conventions, such as still and moving images, captions and improvisation to explore situations and devise short scenes for different purposes.
2] I can plan for improvised dialogue and use the dialogue in existing texts to create short scenes, choosing vocabulary and movement to match the person, place and time required by the story or situation.
3] I can arrive at a basic interpretation of situations and problems and plan and shape a sequence of events in a scene, based on who, when, where and what happened.
4] I can select or create, symbolic props and costumes, appropriate to a character or scene.
5] I can identify the key dramatic aspects e.g. conflict, turning points, and characters, in simple scripts.

3] I can use props, costume signifiers and sound-effects appropriate to a character or scene, to enhance dramatic effect.

2] I can identify and explain how characters in a drama can be portrayed in ways that are believable to the actor and the audience.
3] I can recognise and point at some strengths and weaknesses in a piece of drama and can identify some conventions and technical elements that might be areas for improvement.
