English Trip to Bard’s Birthplace

June 17th, 2015

Year 7 recently visited Stratford-Upon-Avon with the English Department to enhance their study of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.  They enjoyed a talk about the play and a tour of Shakespeare’s Birthplace where they watched scenes being performed by actors located around the house; followed by a short walk to the church where Shakespeare is buried.

On what was a beautiful day, they also performed a version of the play, led by Mr Harris, in the park.  As Daniel Ellery 7S said “to sum it all up, it was a great experience and I learnt a lot about Shakespeare’s life”, with Alex Gadd 7O adding “thank you to the English Department for organising the truly fun and amazing day”.
