Year 8 have been showing great teamwork during our Friday afternoon drama sessions. This is a time for the pupils to come together and share some of their thoughts from the past week.
We make sure that everyone has an equal voice. A ball is passed around a circle. The class member with the ball is given the opportunity to speak. We have been working on respecting this class rule.
Feelings and emotions have been explored during recent lessons. This helps to bring us closer together as a friendship group. Each class member was asked to describe how they feel today, and then explain why.
Some fun games then took place. Year 8 particularly enjoy ping-pong. This is a verbal game that requires quick thinking. The circle of friends state either ping or pong as we go around the group. Each response determines the direction as to who speaks next.
