Shakespeare’s Birthplace

Posted in Adventure, Drama, English, History

We enjoyed a fantastic trip to Stratford Upon Avon  to learn all about William Shakespeare as part of our new topic, Twelfth Night. We worked with actors and made up our own play using characters and settings from Shakespeare’s plays, then performed it outside Shakespeare’s house. We also had the opportunity to watch parts of different plays, explore the house that Shakespeare was born in, the Tudor features of Stratford Upon Avon and Shakespeare’s new place which was demolished and is now a beautiful sculpture garden.

Quicksticks Hockey

Posted in Sport

We took part in the Quicksticks competition at Park School. We were up against lots of other schools all trying to win a place in the Devon County Finals in Plymouth. Our two teams advanced from the group stages but both were eventually defeated at the quarter-final stage. It was a fantastic day and we look forward to next year’s event.
