Today we have had a very ambitious plan to have the whole of our year 10 watching the RSC school broadcast. It was easy because it’s more of like an event so it’s stuck in your mind more. It helps you understand the plot because when you’re reading it it’s just words and like when you’re watching you can see the words in a different perspective. What I’ve found really useful Is students understanding that it’s an actual production and so they can talk about it as a construct as opposed to you know, a reality ‘As to sight. Or art thou a dagger of the mind?’ What’s really lovely about this is that they have little breaks in the middle where they get the opportunity To discuss it with their peers and then to actually have actors answering their questions, their own questions It makes them feel really special. It’s great, it’s just fabulous. We’d never get that opportunity otherwise. It’s really helped with my GCSE because I’ve, like, seen a couple of things that they’ve said. You can learn from other questions that are being asked. The idea of bringing the theatre into the school rather than the other way around is is a real privilege.
