Junior Shakespeare in Schools

Last week our two Year 5 classes took part in the nationwide Shakespeare Schools Festival, performing Hamlet at the Theatre Royal, Winchester, and at the Point, Eastleigh.

They worked extremely hard and both classes gave outstanding performances. The mentors, who are professional actors and directors, gave them wonderful feedback after each of the performances, touching on their exceptional mastery of the language, their creative staging and command of the stage, their clear and engaging storytelling and their beautiful and moving singing. In fact, they “summed up the very spirit of the festival; exceptionally high expectations that were entirely fulfilled.”

Well done Year 5, we are all incredibly proud of you.
