On Tuesday we are welcoming the fantastic M&M Theatre Productions who will be performing Treasure Island. The story is a real children's classic, the cost of which is subsidised by a grant awarded to the school in 2016 by the Ernest Cook Trust. We hope the children thoroughly enjoy the performance.
This week, being Shakespeare Week, our assemblies are based on stories from Tudor times. Today we heard about the fate of Anne Askew who was tortured and burnt at the stake during the time of Henry V111. She was an educated woman who wanted everyone to access the Bible in English, not Latin and she preached Protestant beliefs. Any preacher was subject to scrutiny in those times so a woman was doubly vulnerable!
Being so close to World Book Week, we decided to have a Shakespeare Day instead of the traditional week long celebrations. There's nothing we enjoy more than hurling Shakespearean insults at each other!
