Acting & Drama Games
Some of our favourites include:
Penguin Name Game
This helps the children prepare their bodies and minds for the upcoming class activities. These games focus on multiple areas including characterisation, concentration, confidence,
creativity, imagination, ice-breakers,
improvisation, storytelling, teamwork & trust.
This helps the children develop a love of rhythmical movement, increases range of movement, flexibility
strength, stamina and motivates them to stay active as they grow.
This encourages the children's creative
language, rhyme, clearer diction, projection and expands vocabulary. This also boosts their confidence to speak or sing in front of an audience.
This helps the children gain a better understanding of how to control their bodies. This also teaches them self-discipline in a supportive, encouraging environment, the ability to be a team player (learning the basics of collaboration, cooperation and compromise) and also supports the mentality of working hard to improve and achieve, whilst not giving up.
This helps the children develop strength
and flexibility in their upper body, lower
body and in their core to increase their
gross motor skills.
Acrobatics is based on progressions, so no matter what level you are, there are always sufficient steps to work on.
Arts & Crafts
This helps the children enhance their fine motor skills by working with a wide range of colours, shapes, materials, and tools to create character masks, show tickets, set, props, costume and more. This is also a perfect time to let their creativity flow.
