Year 5/6 The Tempest Workshop
Blakeney Class were very fortunate to have a visit from Spun Glass Theatre company who gave them a full day drama and creative arts workshop. The children were involved in some excellent activities which explored themes running through Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. The children explored storyline, character creation and location displacement in the play itself before thinking about how that related to their knowledge of refugees today.
The children were fully engaged throughout the day and learned a great deal, not only about literature, but also about important social and political issues which are still relevant to us. Thank you Spun Glass Theatre and Creative Arts East who made this day possible!
