The Shakespeare Project begins!

Over the last few weeks year 4 have started their Shakespeare Project 'The Tempest'. Having studied the whole play, they will then be given a small scene to practise and perform at the Royal Exchange in Manchester.

 The play starts with a storm and a shipwreck and the children have discovered that the storm is magical and has been conjured up by a character called Prospero.

In literacy lessons the children have been writing and performing their own spells to change the weather.  So if there is freak weather, we are not responsible!
