Year 5 Shakespeare Workshop

Recently, the children in year five have been learning about Shakespeare in their writing lessons, so Mrs Schofield organised a fantastic workshop based around one of the most famous writers in the world.  On the 26th January 2017, two professional actors came into Ark Chamberlain to work with our children and helped them perform one of Shakespeare’s most famous stories,  A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The actors called for volunteers to help them perform this story and the children got a greater insight into the plot. The volunteers were provided with costumes and a soundtrack for each of their characters. The children in year five had a brilliant time and they got a chance to show off their acting skills, all the teachers were very impressed and entertained. One of the most memorable performances was from Khalid in V Cambridge, he really got into the role and we were all laughing with him.
