This half-term, in English, Year 6 children are exploring the story of Romeo and Juliet. They are using drama to help them understand the play and familiarise themselves with the language.
Act 1 (Scene 1) was full of action and the noise from the Capulets and the Montagues fighting in the school hall could be heard in every classroom! Mrs Taylor, playing the part of Prince Escalus (minus the horse) brought the battle to a close.
The second drama session was Lord Capulet’s party which was planned so that Juliet could meet Paris with the hope of a wedding. However, Romeo had other plans and manages a secret conversation with Juliet.
