Children are challenged further in their improvisation skills, as well as focusing on technique to improve speech and movement. Scripts are introduced and the children are encouraged to create their own characters using exercises such as Hot Seating. Children work towards an end of term performance which helps to improve their performance skills and confidence.

Children learn more advanced singing technique and are encouraged to sing in small groups and on their own. They are introduced to different styles of music, including Musical Theatre and Jazz. We continue to work on technique including articulation, breathing and support. Children can choose songs that they would like to learn, and these are performed at the end of term.
