The Trinity Stars: Young Performers in English Award is designed to encourage the teaching and learning of English language through music, drama and performance. The awards allow young learners between 3 and 12 years old, in groups, with their teachers, to use English language in the classroom in the performance of songs, poems, short plays, stories and/or musical works.
Learners are expected to undertake a language-driven performance in English that is assessed by a Trinity Stars expert. Participants may produce their own material for their performance for the award. This might include props, costumes, songs, scripts, stories, poems and so on. Teachers may also select performance material from published works or from the Trinity support materials which can be found online at trinitycollege.com/supporttrinitystars.
Teachers are encouraged to link performances to themes which they are covering in class.
Alongside the performance, and for each award, learners must produce a class or individual project based on their performance or performance theme. The project encourages holistic learning by integrating the performance or performance themes into the young learners’ learning routine.
