They learnt a dance motif, and then had the opportunity to perform in front of the other schools represented. All our students took part throughout the whole morning and were a credit to the school!
Year 7 visit the RSC to see a performance of The Merchant of Venice
As part of their study of Shakespeare, Year 7 visited The Swan Theatre to see William Shakespeare’s “A Merchant of Venice” performed. The pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
Well done to Ellis, who was invited to play a part with the actors, which he did with enthusiasm. The day concluded with a walk to Shakespeare’s birthplace and a chance to see a scene of Romeo and Juliet performed in the gardens.
Year 8 visit Bosworth Fields
On 26th September Year 8 began their topic on the Tudors by visiting the site of their decisive victory over Richard III at Bosworth Battlefield.
The students had a talk from an archer who demonstrated the speed with which arrows could be delivered. Then the sergeant at arms explained the various weapons and armour and had the students drilling with pikes.
After a look round the exhibition, various students tried out the stocks, though all managed to make it safely back to school. Well done year 8, an excellent day.
