Shakespeare Story Project
Year 5 have had the great opportunity to be involved the Shakespeare Story Project, that is funded by DFE and Arts Council. 30 children were selected by their class teachers to be trained as guides at three different sites; Shakespeare's Birth Place, New Place and Halls Croft. On 29th November 2017, The Familiarisation Day,the 30 selected children went to Stratford Upon Avon and had a tour around the three sites. It was an amazing day packed with many exciting activities which included visiting the three different sites, acting along with the actors, going down into the VAULT and seeing some of the most amazing original resources, quill writing and wax seal. These children have a script to practise and they will return on 14th February 2018 (Immersive Day) with the rest of the children in the Year group and will act as real guides at their allocated sites.
