On Friday 21st January, Years 5 and 6 welcomed their annual Shakespeare workshop into school. This year, the children learned the tale of Romeo and Juliet which will take the focus of English lessons for the next few weeks.
The actors from the Sky Blue Theatre Company have a uniquely entertaining method of helping pupils in Key Stage 2 access Shakespeare’s stories by involving the children as the actors to tell the story alongside them.
A hugely amusing day was had by all as the children used their skills of improvisation to help re-tell the story. There were some highly entertaining moments involving riding horses, scaling walls and slow-motion sword fights!
