Year 8 enjoyed yet another fantastic performance by the Young Shakespeare Company, who performed key scenes from Romeo and Juliet, including the fight scene, which pupils had just completed a Reading assessment on. Pupils were encouraged to interact with the actors, giving suggestions for different genres to perform the balcony scene in, as well as getting up and dancing at the Capulet party. The actors showed pupils how to play fight with believable sound effects. Saskia Munyard, Alec Knocker, Elly-Marie Attwell and Roman Eames all played roles - Roman stole the show with his performance of Tybalt. There was lots of laughter and audible gasping. The year group thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and the actors were hugely impressed with our pupils' knowledge and interaction.
