Year 5 and 6 Workshop: Shakespeare Rewired

On Monday 11th March, Year 5 and 6 were treated to a fantastic day from The Sky Blue Theatre Company. The day consisted of bringing alive two of Shakespeare’s plays: Macbeth and Midsummer Night’s Dream. These are two of the three plays that we will be studying in the Summer term; the other being The Tempest. We will be reading these plays next term but what better way to introduce them to the children than them starring in their very own performance. For each play, the actors from the company chose volunteers to make up the cast who in turn put on their very own ‘rewired’ production. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day whether they were on stage or as part of an active audience. The children really engaged with the plays and I’m sure they can’t wait to get started with learning more about these plays next term.
