Half Term Drama Coursework
First Set
I thought that this drama workshop was worth two hours of skipping any lesson that would help me on my work. The mentor  Ms.Noah provides us a lot of good drama skills that can be used in our drama plays further on. The topic that we focused on in the workshop was Eye and Hand coordination , we played games such as “Follow the Hand” , “Up and Down” and “Listen the Leader”  to get us moving in and practicing on the topic that we are suppose to learn. Out of these three games , i recommend “Follow the Hand” if you want to learn it fast and easy. “Follow the Hand” requires a pair of each gender . One focusing the partner’s hand , while the partner control and moves the hand around to brush up their coordination between the hand and its body. Second Set
