Speech and Drama classes often involve the exploration of poetry, reading aloud, role playing and improvisation.
At Viv’s Schoolhouse, we offer innovative Speech and Drama classes for children in Singapore as part of our curriculum. It is a powerful way for children to learn the basics of effective communication and develop confidence from a young age. We encourage our children to be creative thinkers, critical thinkers and team players by providing them opportunities to express themselves.
As part of our Bilingual Immersion program, our Speech and Drama classes are conducted in English and Mandarin. With Singapore placing a significant emphasis on bilingualism, teaching our classes in two languages allows our pre-schoolers to build a strong foundation in both languages from a young age.
How do Speech and Drama classes help in children’s development?
Well, through a delightful array of activities that range from role-play to puppetry, kids can immerse themselves in an imaginative world with their friends. Role playing can help develop children’s empathy as they connect emotionally to their playing character. Empathy is crucial in allowing kids to connect and understand others deeply.
Speech and Drama classes for children provide a platform for them to present themselves confidently and allow them a voice to share different ideas openly. Preschool drama classes enable pre-schoolers to stand before an audience, typically their classmates, to perform confidently. This can help develop their confidence, public speaking and social skills, which would undoubtedly come in handy in the future.
Our preschool drama classes often include improvisation as part of the syllabus; this teaches our children to think quick on their feet. Children will be challenged to use their imaginative skills and creativity when put on the spot. They will thus learn to be adaptable when faced with various situations or scenarios.
