Our Day at the Globe Theatre

globe200On Wednes­day 25th June, stu­dents from year 7 and 9 went to visit Shakespeare’s Globe, Lon­don.
The day included mul­ti­ple activ­i­ties such as: a Mac­beth work­shop, a live sword fight­ing demon­stra­tion and a guided tour of the stage.
Dur­ing the work­shop we spent time tak­ing part in activ­i­ties about Shakespeare’s play Mac­beth. Even Miss and Sir took part!! We did role play and over­all it was really fun.
The sword fight­ing was amaz­ing; they would rehearse the fights like a dance. They used many dif­fer­ent skills whilst demon­strat­ing! They used a rapier and a dag­ger dur­ing one demon­stra­tion, a long sword in another and finally used long poles with knives on the end. Within the exhi­bi­tion there was a dis­play which showed what men wore (as women char­ac­ters) in the Shake­spearean times and we were able to look at these closely and under­stand how it would have felt under­neath all those layers!

We all enjoyed the trip and would def­i­nitely go again!
