The Year 7s participated in a Story Telling Drama Workshop, led by Theatre Workshop.  Each class dramatically interpreted a section of a poem written by the anonymous poet, Atticus (an alias) – they conveyed the visual imagery of the words, through voice, physical theatre, and essential props: bamboo sticks and an expansive silk cloth. 

The year group revealed excellent teamwork as they were encouraged to problem-solve, developing their ensemble skills. This achieved a myriad of creative effects, with four very different castles, one with turrets, carved into the sky from angled bamboo sticks, another had a draw bridge, while one used the silk cloth as a canopy, creating an instant marquee effect. At the end of the day, the students performed to each other with excellent focus, learning lines and movement sequences in an hour!

This was an exciting introduction to stagecraft, as pupils experimented with voice and theatre styles. Well done Year 7 – what an imaginative and impressive start to the year and a great way to celebrate National Poetry Day on 7 October.
