Shakespeare Week 2015
We are celebrating Shakespeare week during the week beginning March16th.
Day one .
Classes worked on the four plays that we have selected. Year 3 worked on Romeo and Juliet, year 4 on Macbeth, year 5 on The Merchant of Venice and year 6 on Othello. Work on these plays and work linked to them will continue throughout the week.
Four classes worked with a visiting actor to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet. Classes 3CB, 4JC, 5SS and 6JH worked on different scenes from the play and then retold the whole story in the style of a modern day news bulletin to the whole school. All children worked well and the final play was excellent with all children joining in to create a very special afternoon.
Class 5FR worked with Mrs Wood from Phoenix Collegiate Academy to produce scenes. All classes continued to work on their Shakespeare play and work related to the life and times of the nations most famous playwright.
Classes 3SW, 4JB, 5FR and 6MH worked to produce their version of a Midsummer's Night Dream. As on Tuesday the whole school met to put all the pieces of the performance together. The local newspaper visited school to take photographs in order to report on the week.
Thank you to the parents,grandparents and friends of the school who attended the two assemblies today. The work on show from all year groups was simply outstanding and capped off a fine week. The variety of ways in which the plays were tackled was on show and each year group involved all children in presenting to appreciative audiences. The Tudor day was also marked by the majority of children dressing in costume for the day. Photographs can be viewed under the gallery tab, under the main children tab.
