The Arts: Drama
Years 3 and 4
Scripted performance: Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Summary of task
Students studied and reinterpreted the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in an integrated unit that involved English and The Arts. They participated in a process of playbuilding, in which they learned about Edward De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats, and used that information to structure their drama into sequences that represented the intention of each ‘hat’.
Their performances were completed in small groups during the unit of work and were presented to the school and its community at the end of term.
By the end of Year 4, students describe and discuss similarities and differences between drama they make, perform and view. They discuss how they and others organise the elements of drama in their drama.
Students use relationships, tension, time and place and narrative structure when improvising and performing devised and scripted drama. They collaborate to plan, make and perform drama that communicates ideas.
