An enriching and dynamic trip to the Globe Theatre for Dame B's Year 5 pupils.
On 30th October we travelled to London to spend the day at the Globe Theatre. The day was a busy and exciting one. The children toured the theatre, visited the Globe exhibition and took part in a workshop lead by an actor/director working at the theatre.
The children were blown away as the gates swung open for their first view of the theatre. “Stunning, incredible, awesome, inspiring and amazing,” were just a few of the words the children used. A highlight of the trip was performing some lines from Macbeth on the stage, to a round of applause from the audience!
The workshops were superb; the children explored the way the witches manipulated Macbeth, the destructive relationship between Lord and Lady Macbeth and how bodies, minds and voices are used to create character.
It was a fantastic day and a great end to our topic on William Shakespeare!
