Description

Step 2 Speech and Drama (Ages 6-8 senior infants-2nd class): This 90 minute class provides a great introduction to the world of speech and drama. Poetry speaking, mime, stories, improvisation, exercises for clear speech, and lots of fun games. With the options to take part in Feis Maitiu poetry competitions and an Initial speech and drama examination at the end of the year.

Note:  This class is recommended for 1st-2nd class students. Students in Senior Infants who have previously attended classes with us can join however we would recommend that new students in Senior Infants consider doing Term 1 in Step 1, with the option to move to Step 2 after Christmas. Why? Term 1 leads up to a performance in a professional theatre which we would recommend for students aged 7 and over.
