100% Success For Years 3 And 4 In Their LAMDA Examinations
All 60 Crescent pupils who took the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations in December have passed with the overwhelming majority achieving a distinction.
At Crescent School, children from Years 3-6 study for the examinations in their Drama lessons as part of the school’s curriculum. After excellent results last year, Drama teacher, Lizzie Bowdige, challenged Years 3 and 4 by entering them for Introductory level, Stages 2 and 3 respectively, one step up from the examinations sat by the year groups last year.
In their examinations, the pupils were judged on interpretation, technique and knowledge. They had to consider their diction, expression and movement and be able to discuss the mood and meaning of the poems they performed. The results were received at the end of last week and they were outstanding.
Lizzie Bowdige, comments, “I am delighted with the results. Congratulations to all the children. What’s great about the LAMDA exams is that they equip the children with communication skills which will serve them throughout life. They also promote an appreciation of literature and poetry and help unlock imagination and creative thinking. I am very proud of all the pupils."
