Kindy Drama Classes at BeNS

Our Kindy classes at Beaulieu Nursery School (BeNS) are so much fun and at the same time students are learning important life skills - like sharing, learning to work together and of course oral communication skills!
Movement is also a very important part of our curriculum - This week during our Fun and Fantasy theme we explored a mime to music called The Bright Balloons 
- the students used their bodies to create different shaped balloons!

First Friends journey through South Africa

The students at First Friends Montessori are only 3-5years and for many of them this was their first time on stage!!!
Despite their young age they put on an incredible performance!
Their play took the audience on a taxi ride through South Africa - the students taught us all about Zululand and Chaka Zulu as well as how Mandela spent 27 years on Robben Island. It was fascinating!! 
Of course they sang lots of fun songs and amazed the audience with singing the National anthem "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrica"

Every student at the school participates in Helen O'Grady Academy's weekly drama programme and they are learning important life skills - like how to project their voices and articulate clearly as well as learning how to share, work together and be creative! We also teach them how to be comfortable getting up on stage in front of an audience! 

The most important thing is that they all had fun yesterday and enjoyed the experience!!
