LAMDA’s performance examinations use drama to develop self-confidence, physical presence and a strong speaking voice. Our preparations have already begun for our LAMDA examinations taking place next year. Children from year 1 to year 6 have signed up and are enjoying their weekly lessons with Mrs Iversen.
On Monday 18th May, LAMDA examinations were held at Hadrian Academy. Over forty children, our highest number yet, from Year 1 to Year 6 were entered for examinations in Speaking Verse and Prose ranging from Preliminary to Grade Three.
We are proud to announce that many of the children not only passed but passed with Merit and with the top mark of Distinction. During assembly the candidates received a certificate and written report from LAMDA – along with hearty congratulations from Mrs Ingham.
LAMDA 4th July 2014
Congratulations go to all pupils who took their LAMDA exams earlier this term. Once again students at Hadrian Academy shone in this year’s LAMDA examinations with a 100% pass rate. Certificates have arrived and the hard work all the pupils put into the poems has has been recognised.
2nd April, 2013. Following the children’s great success in LAMDA exams in previous years, we are pleased to extend this opportunity to children in years 1, 2, 3 and 4 once again this year.
LAMDA examinations are designed to equip learners, whatever their age or aspirations, with a range of skills which will serve them throughout life. Preparation for an examination can unlock imagination and creative-thinking, develop communication skills, refine technical skills and artistry, and promote team-work. The examinations themselves provide learners with an opportunity to measure progress against an international standard, build self-confidence and self-esteem, and receive appraisal and guidance for future development. Excellent children pass with merit or distinction. Everyone who passes receives a certificate.
Last year our results were excellent with the vast majority gaining merits or distinctions. To see samples of work presented by last year’s children take a look and enjoy the four videos below.
