Year 5 Visit The Globe Theatre
As part of their English studies on Shakespeare, Year 5 travelled to The Globe Theatre on Wednesday 31st January.
The visit started with a guided tour when the children learnt about the history of The Globe Theatre and the Tudor and Stuart way of life. This was followed by an Elizabethan dress demonstration when two children were dressed up in clothes from the period. Next we watched a sword fighting demonstration which, for many of the children, was the highlight of their day.
Following a break for lunch, there was just enough time to visit the exhibition and the gift shop where a number of mementos were bought to remind us of a most enjoyable, informative and interesting day.
