CHILDREN from Gladstone Road Junior School enjoyed a Shakespearean workshop when they spent the day at Scarborough Art Gallery.

Around 30 pupils from years four, five and six took part in various activities before putting on their very own production as part of the art gallery’s Midsummer Night’s Dream workshop, called Shakespeare in Scarborough.

The children traded Shakespearean insults, performed a silent pantomime, created a soundscape and rehearsed their performance before finally putting what they had learned into practice.

The schools business manager Caroline Sarney said: “We do a lot of drama in the school so this showed the children different aspects of putting on a production and taught them new skills.

“It gave them a more rounded view of what it takes to put on a production.

“All of the children had a great time and everybody said it had been a really successful day.”

Teacher Lesley Doods, who took the children to the workshop, said: “It was exceptional. The children really enjoyed it.”
