The Class 4 team consists of Mrs Nevison (Class Teacher p/t), Mrs Rutter (Class Teacher p/t), Mrs Costello (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Thompson (Teaching Assistant).
Our blog this week is brought to you by two of our children in Class 4. This is what they have to say about what we’ve been up to this week.
We enjoyed last week because we did a lot of drama and it was very fun to do. We were acting out a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. One of us was playing the part of Demetrius and the other was Helena. In this scene, Demetrius is telling Helena to back off and leave him alone as he does not love her as she loves him. It was a weird situation for the two of us to be in because we are best friends and we never argue like that in real life! It was really fun to do it and we wish we could do it again!
What an exciting first week we’ve had in Class 4! Last week, together with Year 5 and 6 at Denton, we took a trip to London. We began our day with a tour of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. We all enjoyed looking around the theatre and imagining what it might have looked like in Shakespeare’s time. Harley loved all the differently shaped timbers. Next, we took part in a workshop where we explored some of the themes in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. It was really interesting to learn about different acting techniques. ‘I had great fun!’ said Lottie.
After lunch, we spent some time at the Tate Modern. We were lucky enough to visit the Giacometti exhibition as well as some of the other galleries. Ruby loved the Giacometti exhibition, commenting that, ‘it was really interesting and different. I liked how the sculptures didn’t look exactly like people.’
We also had the opportunity to go to the top floor of the Tate (ten floors up!) and we enjoyed looking at the London skyline and spotting well-known buildings. This was Bella’s favourite part of the trip. ‘You could see the whole of London!’ she said. We spotted The Shard, Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, Wembley Stadium, the BT Tower and The Gherkin among others.
