Year 9 spent an enriching day on London’s Southbank. Starting with a picnic lunch in the sunshine by the Thames, they then spent the afternoon watching a fantastic performance of ‘The Merchant of Venice’ at The Globe. It was a touring production, involving a very talented cast who all played double roles with great skill. Pupils found the funny parts hilarious, asking ‘Is it supposed to be that funny? Did they add bits?!’ and the serious parts dark and unsettling. We finished our afternoon with another picnic al fresco and a short browse around the Tate Modern, doing our best to interpret the most abstract of pieces.
