How to help your child: (3 strategies parents could deploy to support their children in studying your subject).
1. Encouraging them to share performances at home and also allowing them to verbally express their creative intentions for performance.

2. Encouraging record and save their practical work so that they can use this to support the writing up of final evaluations. Encouraging them to complete written work soon after the lesson will help them to write reflectively.

3. Encouraging them to watch some live theatre outside of school or engage with the ways costume, lighting, sound and set design is used in film/television and the impact it has.
