In the Summer Term the Music and Drama Departments joined forces for a remote learning project entitled ‘Musicrama’.

Pupils from the First to Third Forms tapped into the inner lives of toys (1F), household objects (2F), and any inanimate object (3F) and created monologues accompanied by soundtracks and sound effects.

For Drama pupils were encouraged to script, add stage directions, movement, gesture and expression, vocal intonation, pauses and to design and make costumes and props. For Music, students got to grips with BandLab and Garage Band and were encouraged to make music out of everyday objects, as well as any instruments or recorded music that was fitting to their piece.

Finally, the pupils used editing apps such as iMovie to put their pieces together and record their final performances.

Here are two of the final projects:
