The Learning CIC returns to Maltby Academy to work with Year 11
Fran Perry, Managing Director – The Learning CIC
Year 11 students have taken part in an extended learning session to support their understanding and exploration of the text, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, which they are currently studying for their English Literature coursework. The students looked at the character of Juliet and the parental relationships she has with her mother, Lady Capulet, her father, Lord Capulet, and her Nurse. This involved a drama based session with an actor, as well as a speaking and listening task and hot seating with the students. They also looked at key scenes and thought about the Shakespearian language used throughout to enable them to access the text to the best of their ability. Students worked well and enjoyed the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom as well as develop their understanding of the play, Romeo and Juliet.
