Welcome to Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School, Debenham
Years 3 and 4 Viking Workshop Day
On Tuesday 12 January a drama company came to the School to work with the Year 3 and 4 classes in a Viking Workshop. The children learnt about the Vikings in a very active and exciting way. They all performed in a short play which told the story of the Viking people – their raids, religion, culture, politics, food and lifestyle.
The children worked with a professional drama director who took them through a dynamic, theatrical and creative workshop. As well as learning about the Vikings, the children also learnt about performance skills (such as projecting their voice and facing their audience). These are skills they will use as they start their school production in a few weeks’ time. The children practised their speaking and listening, developed their confidence, concentration, teamwork and also had a lot of fun!
At the end of the day the children performed their play to parents to show off what they had done and what they had learnt.
