To Rain Or Not To Rain

In the English Department, we are delighted to be going on several trips over the next couple of months! In June, the Year 8s are going to the Roald Dahl Museum to inspire their creative writing. Hopefully, it won’t inspire their cooking, as we’re not sure Mrs Jones will be too pleased if they swap their spaghetti for worms like Mrs Twit! This will support work they are doing in the classroom learning about one of Roald Dahl’s novels and hopefully- will inspire a love of reading too!

As well as this, the Year 9s are going to the Globe Theatre, London this week to tie in with their work on William Shakespeare. It will be interesting to find out what it was like to go to the theatre in Shakespeare’s time – it was a little different from our trip to the pantomime each Christmas! Interestingly, the middle of the theatre doesn’t have a roof. This is where the ‘Groundlings’ stood, the cheap tickets, so they always got wet!

We will all be wondering if it is to rain or not to rain? That is the question!
