All the World's a Stage......

Year 6 Visit the Globe Theatre in London!

It was definitely all things fair that came Year 6's way today, as we enjoyed a captivating trip to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London.

The coach journey through the centre of London took us past some of the capital's most famous landmarks. After using Google Earth before our visit to explore the area. it was wonderful to see attractions such as: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, the London Eye for real. For some of Year 6, it was the first time they had visited London: judging by all the excited exclamations that could be heard as the coach proceeded they were not disappointed.

Sightseeing From the Bus

On arrival, and after a very quick lunch, we were taken into the amazing Globe theatre. It was a magical experience-especially when we were allowed to act out a short scene on the actual stage. As you can see from the following photographs, some of the Year 6 children (and a certain very dramatic teacher!) were definitely in their element.

From there, it was into the actual rehearsal rooms where we explored the story of Macbeth though drama. Can you spot who is playing the witches?
