Fancy Dress and Drama for Junior School Literature Week

Young story fans in the Junior School enjoyed two days of fiction fun when they celebrated their own Literature Week.
Day one was ‘Classic Author/Book Day’, when each class focused on a particular literary area and took part in activities based on their own chosen theme. 
Reception to Year 3 studied authors including Janet & Allan Ahlberg (The Jolly Postman), Beatrix Potter, A.A Milne and Ted Hughes (The Iron Man). Year 4 considered classical poetry, Year 5 focused on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic adventure tale Treasure Island and Year 6 learned all about classic villains.
Day two was ‘Shakespeare Day’ when all the pupils and their teachers came to School dressed as their favourite Shakespeare character. Everyone stood up in a special assembly to display their fabulous outfits.
CHS Junior School Teacher, Mrs Gladman led dramatic workshops for the Infants focusing on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest and Macbeth, whilst visiting Skyblue Theatre Company led workshops for Year 3 & Year 4 on The Twelfth Night and for Year 5 & Year 6 on Romeo & Juliet
Year 5 and 6 also researched the character they had decided to come to School dressed as and gave a short description to the rest of their class of who they were and what role they played in which story.
