This week we welcomed the Young Shakespeare Company into school to lead workshops on Romeo and Juliet with all our Year 7 students.
The workshops, held over three days, were active and energetic, inspiring students to act out key scenes of the play and engage with Shakespeare’s language. Godolphin’s Head of English, Julian Bell said, ‘It was wonderful to see our Year 7 students responding to Romeo and Juliet with such enthusiasm and passion. We have had Young Shakespeare Company in every year for over 20 years, and they never fail to spark an enduring love for Shakespeare in our younger students’.
Godolphin student Hermione said ‘I loved the experience and I would love to read the play. This has inspired me to become more interested in Shakespeare’s intriguing stories!’.
