Languages - create a news or weather report in another language with footage of France or a scene from China, etc. as a backdrop
History - use footage from the past and report or take part in the action: e.g. wars, gold-panning, walk along the Great Wall of China…
English - retell stories, act in part of a play, novel or movie.
Marketing and / or business studies - create an advert for an imaginary or real product
PE - provide a sports report or commentary on favorite sporting moments or school fixtures
Music - Create music videos
Video production is also a good tool for use technology in Drama.
School Community - create weekly news bulletin (add the to youtube or your school website) with reports of sports matches, trips, projects, etc. Create a video prospectus for visitors, parents and younger children coming up to the school
