R14 Shakespearean Workshop
On Wednesday, 5th July, our R14 pupils were treated to an exciting morning of Drama with an experienced actor, Simon Riordan. Pupils performed either ‘Romeo and Juliet’ or ‘Henry V’ to follow on from their Literature studies of the plays this term. Pupils participated in some fun Drama warm-up exercises, which was promptly followed by some close language study of the Bard. I think it is safe to say that the pupils’ favourite part of the session was where they were taught ‘body combat’! Mr Riordan showed the pupils how to safely ‘hit’ one another using the dramatic technique of ‘knapping’: there was much fun had and pupils thoroughly enjoyed the session. It was a lovely end of term treat for our studious R14 pupils.
