Crescent School Pupils' LAMDA Results Are Outstanding Yet Again
All 83 Crescent pupils who took the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations back in January have passed with the overwhelming majority, 80 pupils, achieving a distinction.
Children from Year 3-6 study for the examinations in their Drama lessons as part of the school’s curriculum. Years 3-4 take the Introductory level, Stages 1 and 2 respectively, while Years 5-6 study the Communications - Speaking Verse and Prose, Entry and Grade 1 examinations.
The children prepare poems to perform. They are judged on interpretation, technique and knowledge. They have to consider their diction, expression and movement and be able to discuss their choices of poems with their examiner.
Drama teacher Kim Thompson explains, “What’s brilliant about the LAMDA exams is that they equip the children with communication skills which will serve them throughout life. They not only promote an appreciation of literature and poetry, but also help unlock their imagination and creative-thinking. This is a superb set of results, some of the best the school has ever seen, I am delighted.”
Congratulations to all of the children, Crescent School is very proud of you. These results are a reflection of your hard work both in and out of school – clearly all your rehearsing paid off.
