In order to improve students' bilingual learning ability, discover and develop students' potential, Shanghai Paddington bilingual school started a drama class in 2018 academic year. After more than one year's exploration, the school-based implementation of drama class has begun to take shape. On the afternoon of January 3, 2019, the representatives of the third and fourth grade students of the primary school performed in Room 501 in the form of drama performance competition, showing the achievements of drama studying in this semester.
The drama competition is about to start. The judges, the audience and the hosts are ready, and they are waiting for our little actors to act!
When waiting on both sides of the stage, the little actors are waiting quietly and orderly. On the stage, it's their home court. They cooperate with their partners and show their roles with props, language and body movements. Getting off the stage, they are audience, watching carefully, clapping hands and screaming for the students on the stage!
Larissa, the drama teacher, and Ms. Zhou, the director of the primary school praise the performance of the students, affirm their efforts for the performance, and hope that the students could continue to keep their passion for drama.
Look! During the interactive sessions, the students are raising their hands and want to express their love for drama on stage!
