Year 9 Drama Workshop at Nottingham Playhouse

Pupils in Year 9 have been looking at conflict in their Drama lessons. This afternoon, we went to Nottingham Playhouse to take part in a drama workshop with Martin Berry (Head of Participation at Nottingham Playhouse) to explore the topic further.

With Toy Story 4 currently showing in the cinemas, what better example of dramatised conflict to work with than a squabbling scene from Toy Story 1 between Woody and Buzz? We had great fun acting this out.

We noticed that there is a pattern in drama where repetition is used to demonstrate or exacerbate conflict. In an argument, you’ll often hear a word strongly repeated back from what the other person has said in the dialogue.

Woody: “It’s all your fault!”
Buzz: “MY FAULT?”

Thank you to Nottingham Playhouse for enriching learning for pupils at Hollygirt School and for the amazing work they do for the wider community.

Year 1 and 2 Southwell Minster

Pupils in Year 1 and 2 went on a Time Travelling Pilgrimage Day at Southwell Minster yesterday.

We role played a Christian wedding and our bride was wearing pink wellington boots with her dress. We hear it’s the latest trend in bridal fashion! We then went outside to look closely at the magnificent Minster to see what shapes we could see. After that, we listened to talk about The Last Supper and tasted some bread. Finally, we touched the sculptures depicting the Easter story which were designed to help people who are visually impaired.

Thank you to Mrs Jackson, Mrs Sowerby and Mrs Davies for accompanying us.
