On Tuesday this week, Year 6 were enthralled by the Young Shakespeare’s performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, one of Shakespeare’s comedy plays. Pupils were selected throughout the afternoon to travel to Athens and visit a magical forest along with professional actors. Our BCS amateur actors were perfectly engaging and delivered their lines in a captivating manner. In our English lessons, year 6 have been immersed in various drama activities in class following this theatrical treat.
Pupil quotes as they left the Hall:

‘An interesting and imaginative play, where everyone was included.’ Elsie F
‘Lovely that they took the audience into consideration and taught the story with narration interweaved.’ Macca R-N
