We are very proud of the opportunities we give children to develop as performers at Gallions and the quality of performances we present strengthens every year. Every child in every year-group performs at least once a year. Our performances combine both dance and drama and are fully inclusive, involving every child. We have a Performing Arts Lead and Performing Arts Team, who write the scripts, design the set and make every prop and costume. This leads to bespoke performances, which engage and challenge our pupils.
Through Dance & Drama lessons weekly for Reception – Y2 and fortnightly for KS2, our pupils build up skills in dance and drama technique and performance skills.
In 2018, highlights include Y3 “Walking in Air”, telling the story of The Snowman through dance, drama and song. Y6 performed “The Grinch”, entertaining every member of the audience and inspiring our younger children to grow in confidence with their own performances.
