Trip to The Globe Theatre


As part of their studies on Shakespeare, and The Tempest in particular, Year 5 visited The Globe Theatre in London on Monday. The Globe's exhibition of old costumes, artefacts and musical instruments gave the girls a real sense of life in Shakespeare's time. After lunch they had a tour of the theatre and were excited to see actors rehearsing for the evening performance of Macbeth. The afternoon was then spent taking part in workshops themed around The Tempest. Girls learnt warm up activities, were guided in creating scenes from the play, taught how to project their voices and make eye contact with fellow actors and enjoyed learning lines. The girls threw themselves whole-heartedly into the day. They clearly gained an appreciation of Shakespearian theatre and are eager to continue their studies of The Tempest.
