Much Ado About Nothing
On Thursday, 2nd July, Class 5 visited Appleby Castle to watch an outdoor performance of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
The day began with a workshop led by the actors from the GB Theatre Company. The children completed a series of drama warm up activities before working on some improvisations linked to the play. The childre were wonderful and we clearly have some future dramatic stars in our midst.
The workshop was filmed by Border TV and that itself was great fun as well as allowing them to see how clips for the programme are put together.
After lunch, the class watched the performace against the beautiful setting of Appleby Castle in lovely sunshine. The whole day was a real experience for the children.
