A drum! A drum! Macbeth doth come!

The rehearsals for the Year 6 production of Macbeth kicked off with a visit to the King's Hall with some of our key cast members earlier this week.  The visit gave us the opportunity to become familiar with the space the cast will be performing in and to measure the stage for rehearsals back at school.

The school were very fortunate to have former pupil Joe Skeats come in to our whole school assembly and talk to the children about the epic journey he is about to undertake.
