Year 6 Girls "Shake Up Shakespeare"
Wednesday, 03 June 2009
Year 6 girls at Bolton School have been working hard to re-enact and reinterpret eight short scenes from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Mrs Worsley, English Coordinator for Junior Girls, said: "The benefits of drama in the curriculum are far reaching - purposeful discussion of ideas, issues and themes; the adoption of new roles for pleasure, effect and audience; thorough investigation of characters and motives; learning about sequencing and developing strategies for efficacy in team work. Pupils have thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience."
