Shakespeare bridges Key Stages


Ten Year 8 students spent two afternoons working with Year 5 students from Newfield Primary School. During the first session, the Year 8s demonstrated their knowledge of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, which they are currently studying in English lessons. They role-modelled their own writing and then set Newfield pupils a writing task, which they brought to the second session. The Year 8s then used drama to teach the primary pupils the plot of the whole play, which the Year 5s then acted out. The Year 8 students involved were wonderful and were highly praised by the primary teachers and pupils. Well done!
