The highlight of our week was watching the RSC company perform The Merchant of Venice. The children had to describe the play using 5 words, these included: tense, dramatic, hilarious, disturbing, frightening.
What can I say about this week? It is hard to put into words what it’s like teaching Shakespeare to young children. The “active approaches” we have gained from working with the RSC transform the classroom into a place of self expression and exploration.
Why not go and experience a First Encounters Performance of this wonderful Shakespeare Play. A perfect introduction to Shakespeare for all ages. Tickets are £5 and available from the school office of Our Lady of the Assumption, Common Edge Road, Blackpool, FY4 5DF or can be reserved by phoning 01253 762833
To continue the leadership theme that Year 6 have started, on Friday, they celebrated mass with other Year 6 children from our deanery schools. This was a very special time when all the children were asked to consider the responsibility of being a disciple of Christ. Fr Peter reminded them that just as Christ is the light of the world, they too are called to be lights for others.
