This week saw second and third year students at Thornton College take part in a Shakespeare workshop delivered by two actors from nationwide theatre company Shakespeare 4 Kidz (S4K). The S4K actors delivered workshops to KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, A Level and Special Educational Need students. The workshop focused on Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s anarchic tale of love, loss and transformation.
Second year students at Thornton College are currently studying Twelfth Night in their Drama sessions. The S4K workshop offered a layer of enrichment to the student’s learning and helped to motivate them for their upcoming performance of the play.
All the students who took part in the workshops are to be highly commended for their efforts. David Ashcroft’s performance as the clown Feste, particularly stood out. Katie Fishlock, playing Twelfth Night’s heroine Viola, answered questions from S4K actors and proved herself to be especially knowledgeable about the play. Sam Tandy must also be noted for his maturity and professionalism throughout the workshop and in his performance as a policeman.
Shakespeare 4 Kidz actors commented on how thoughtful and pleasant the Thornton College students were throughout the workshop.
