Shakespeare Day

P7's enjoyed exploring the world of William Shakespeare through Art, Drama and English as they prepare to move to Beaton Road this August. 

Shakespeare Day is an important annual transition event, preparing Primary pupils for Senior School through fun activities.

Suitably clad in period costumes, the group learned all about the art of stage fighting in the Drama Department. FP and professional fight director, Janet Lawson, introduced the pupils to foam fighting and traditions of the Elizabethan era.

In the English Department, pupils had the opportunity to discuss exciting stories and were very enthusiastic about Twelfth Night. 

The Art Department gave everyone a chance to get crafty, creating masks and crowns fit for a period drama. 

The day was a great success and the pupils are now even more excited to begin their journey into Senior School next term.
