Let's have a quick reminder about drama! Drama is about telling a story, and how we tell the story, by using our entire bodies, our words and our stage.
Today we learned about improvising. That means making things up as you go along. It doesn't need to be learning lines off by heart. Múinteoir Ray showed us how we can use IDIOMS in our drama lessons. Idioms are phrases that do not mean directly what they say.
For example, Ray said he was over the moon to be on Home School Hub! It doesn’t mean he was actually over the moon but that he was just very happy.
Today we used our whole body in our drama lesson but you can create drama by just using your finger!
What you need:
scissors and glue or tape.
Try out these finger puppet robots and create a futuristic drama of your own!
Ask an adult to help you cut out the puppets. Print out the activity sheet here for instructions!
We are going to act out some idioms from the list below.
Pick an idiom below and let's get dramatic!
A loose cannon
I am over the moon
Don't cry over spilled milk
Woke up on the wrong side of the bed
Think outside the box
Cat got your tongue?
Now use your imagination and drama skills improvise some of the following:
Like a kid in a candy store
All your eggs in one basket
Plenty of fish in the sea
Read between the lines
Love is blind
Tail between your legs
Laughter is the best medicine
The grass is always greener on the other side
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree
