27 Sep Year 6 Drama Project – ‘The Unprecedented Case’
Year 6 pupils take part in an exciting theatre project.
In July 2017 eight of our Year 6 pupils took in a terrific theatre project called The Unprecedented Case.
This project was devised by the Hand Of theatre group in conjunction with the Parliamentary Archives and the National Trust. It was specifically created for 25 Year 6 SEND and Pupil Premium students from across Hackney primary schools.
The project was comprised of 14 workshops at Sutton House (a phenomenally beautiful Grade II listed Tudor House on Homerton High Street); a day trip to the Houses of Parliament and an exciting evening performance.
Our children were especially delighted to be taken to the Houses of Parliament, where they received a full tour of Parliament, as well as an exclusive invitation into the Parliamentary Archive.
The children actually saw the historic Act (1545) central to the creation of Sutton House.
It was an amazing opportunity for our pupils to work with a small group of musicians and puppeteers, creating and performing a piece of music theatre inspired by stories from the history of Sutton House.
The process of creating the piece was designed to improve literacy skills and build confidence as ahead of their transition to their secondary schools.
