Year 9 perform to year 7

Yesterday students from the year 9 BTEC acting class showed a couple of short performances to a chosen audience as part of their unit studying Theatre in Education (TiE). They chose to perform to a year 7 peer group about the impact of social media on a young persons life, first developing ideas about how social media has an impact on their own lives and then researching statistics and information about how this translates to the wider community. As a TiE performance, they then facilitated short rehearsals with year 7 so that they could devise and perform their own versions of what they had seen. This was the first time year 9 had performed to a public audience and they did an absolutely fantastic job, well done!
