Drama at Penzance is part of the learning area, Arts and Culture. The learners are exposed to public speaking, improvisation, choral verse, mime, verbal dynamics and movement. A number of the classroom activities involve group work – this enables the learners to grow and develop creativity as well as social skills by learning to co-operate and work together as a team. The ability to express oneself coherently and assertively is a very important skill learnt during group activities. Each child will be involved in appearing on stage in a Foundation Phase or Senior Primary Phase performance or in one of the Special Day assemblies during the year in assembly.
