When television companies visit school looking for actors, support your child when he/she auditions.

Listen to your child practising words/scripts for practical assessments.
Be prepared to share your possessions!  Pupils are often asked to bring props and costumes in for practical assessments.

Encourage your child to watch Welsh programmes on S4C- a character or a storyline could inspire your child in a drama lesson and this is an ideal way for your chills to listen to the Welsh language outside school.
Encourage your child to read over homework and ensure that deadlines are met.
