Year 4 got the opportunity to be part of the Children's Shakespeare Festival, to re-inact a scene from Shakespeare's play The Tempest, at The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. The project gave children a real sense of excitement about the drama, people and words of Shakespeare. Their scene was the telling of the strange island; it's magical inhabitants and it's powerful ruler, the magician Prospero. He summoned the storm to break the ship and bring the passengers to the island. KS2 were lucky to go along and watch the fabulous acting. James Baister and Lois Kerr sang a beautiful solo and all of the children had a passion for their part. The atmosphere in the theatre was emotive and tense.
We were very proud of our year 4 children who worked extremely hard to make it a great success.
