Minehead Middle School Strive for excellence


In Drama at MMS, pupils are encouraged to express themselves creatively by participating in a wide range of drama activities and to evaluate their own and others’ contributions; pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding to:


  • Use a variety of dramatic techniques to explore ideas, issues, texts and meanings.
  • Use different ways to convey action, character, atmosphere and tension when they are scripting and performing in plays (for example through dialogue, movement & pace).
  • Appreciate how the structure and organisation of scenes and plays contribute to dramatic effect.
  • Evaluate critically the intentions and performance of dramas which they have watched or in which they have taken part.


The range of drama activities includes:


1. Improvising and working in role.

2. Devising, scripting and performing in plays.

3. Discussing and reviewing their own and others’ performances.
