It’s a wonderful nature reserve everyone should visit!


Year 6 had a Macbeth workshop this week with Julian from York Theatre Royal.  Here they are acting a scene between Macbeth and his wife in modern day language.  York Theatre Royal are in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company on their national Associate Schools programme, which aims to provide access to students and teachers with the best access to learning, experiencing and understanding Shakespeare. A fantastic initiative, that the children love.
