Do I have to complete the lessons in order?
Yes please, our lessons are designed to build on your skills as you progress, so please do them in their numbered order.
Can my child work on their own?
Yes, the programme is designed for students to complete the tasks on their own. Depending on their comprehension skills and technology skills, they should only need you to be the audience for their final performance.
What if there are 5 weeks in a particular month?
If you have completed all four lessons in the module and there is an extra week in the month, we suggest you work on one of the scripts provided, incorporating all the new skills you have gained in that module.
What is a self-reflection?
Our aim with the The Drama Academy is to create a love for performing and to build confidence. We therefore don’t provide formal assessments but rather a weekly self-reflection sheet for the students to reflect on their lesson. It is also a tool to confirm completion of the tasks.
What if I dont understand the instructions?
We provide both a PDF lesson and a video to explain the activities, ensuring the students understand, however should you need assistance please feel free to fill in our contact form and we will send further instructions.
What do I receive in my Bag of Tricks?
The bags for each quarter are different, and we do like to keep it a surprise but to give you a few hints, your first bag will contact a stopwatch, a notepad and pen, a fun item to advertise, and a few other bits and bobs.
What do I do if I have two children?
The items in the bag can be shared without compromising any of the activities. Alternately you can order a second bag.
You can order a second bag from our online store and we will send it together the bag included with your subscription.
How will I get my bag?
Your bag will be couriered to you. Once it is on it’s way we will send you a notification.
