Today you were all enrolled as students at the Lings School of Journalism. Your first assignment is to visit a remote Mediterranean island where there have been reports of a spectacular and devastating storm. You will need to visit the island in order to gather the facts, interview witnesses and write your report.
What have you found out so far? How did the storm start? Why did Prospero do this? Who was on the ship? What does Miranda think about this?
Feel free to leave your journalist’s notes here!
On Monday we explored The Tempest at The RSC’s Clore Learning Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon. You were lucky enough to work with Nadia who has recently been in The Merchant of Venice and Othello.
What did you discover about the play? Which characters interested you? What is the plot of The Tempest? What are the themes of the play?
Tell us all here!
Here is the place to blog all things Hamlet!
Before watching, tell us everything you know about the play. Include plot, characters, anything that comes to mind.
During the production tomorrow you will be able to blog during the intervals about what you have just watched. Again, you can comment on anything to do with the play that interests you.
Some of you saw it at the RSC tonight whilst some of you performed it at the Saints Study Centre with Kieron.
In January you will be exploring this play more. In preparation, blog everything you now know about The Tempest.
Next week is the first RSC Live School Broadcast of the year! On Thursday you will be watching the full version of Hamlet direct from the RSC theatre in Stratford. Before the broadcast we will be getting to know the play and will be basing our writing and reading learning around it.
To be prepared for this we would like you to watch this video which tells you the story of Hamlet. It would be useful for you to have some knowledge of the plot and the characters before Monday.
Feel free to blog any comments or questions here.
