Improvisation!

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:
Adult supervision
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!
