Globe Theatre Trip

16th May 22

On Wednesday 4 May, Year 6 travelled back in time to the Elizabethan era when they visited the Globe Theatre in London as part of their Shakespeare study in English.

After enjoying a picnic lunch on the banks of the Thames, the girls went into the Globe, which, judging from their immediate response on entering, was a little different to what they had imagined. From their seats in the gallery, they had a taste of what it might have been like to watch a play in Shakespeare’s time. They discovered lots of interesting facts about the theatre and learnt how some of its unique features enabled the actors to interact with the audience.

This was followed by a drama workshop based on Macbeth, where the girls had the opportunity to use Shakespearean language. While one group brought the opening scene of the play to life by creating a soundscape of the gathering storm and enacting the meeting between Macbeth, Banquo and the three witches, the second group explored the interaction between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as she urged him to act upon the witches’ prophesy and murder King Duncan. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and their teachers were impressed with their enthusiasm and acting skills.

A fun, and of course educational, day was had by all!
