I felt very lucky to teach these students today. As I said to parents after the class, these kids have made me think about a valuable life lesson today. This class has developed into a wonderful close-knit team. They each support and encourage one another with no finger pointing or arguments. I saw this in many examples as I have progressively every week. Today I saw Amber and Jason helping our two younger students. They made sure the younger students knew what to do and they kept them involved and up to speed with the rest of the group. I also witnessed Charlotte and Abby in our story drama helping the whole class by beginning the hunt for the snowman pieces. Although, it wasn’t up to me to compliment them in order to suggest to the rest of the group the right instruction, to follow them. They were kind enough to share their understanding with the group, shouting things like “Come on everyone let’s look for the snow man” and “Look guys, we have to look for the snowman, like this”. It was at these moments I was forced to think about teamwork and just how big a role drama plays in building it and also just how big an impact it has on the children who participate. I have found that in all our Helen O’Grady classes, teamwork is constantly apparent. Through drama education one is able to create a safe space. A safe space is a place in which the participants, who work within it, can feel comfortable to express, try new things and inevitably learn because they were able to build that support system mentioned; their team. This helps the children develop willingness and an excitement to learn and this will greatly benefit them in the long run.
