Shakespearian Theatre visits The Venue and Walton High!

ShakespearianTheatrecollageOn 16th October, a travelling theatre company came to perform Macbeth and Hamlet to students in years 11 and 8. Students made the most of this great opportunity to see texts that they have studied and also take part in small workshops. This gave them the experience of Elizabethan stagecraft and learning scripts in an authentic atmosphere which will no doubt be useful in their classroom explorations of the plays. 

Many thanks to the SayTwo Production team for coming to Walton High. 

Once there was Magic… at Walton High!

oncemagic2The worldwide bestselling author-illustrator Cressida Cowell (creator of the How to Train Your Dragon series) flew in to Walton High last month to launch her latest title The Wizards of Once.
Year 7, The Big Read competition winners and students in Years 5 and 6 at New Chapter and Heronsgate were lucky enough to attend a presentation where Cressida shared her top tips on becoming an author-illustrator and spoke about the inspiration for her award winning writing. 
How to Train Your Dragon has sold over 8 million books worldwide in 38 languages. It is an award-winning DreamWorks film series and we were fortunate enough to hear Cressida reveal behind-the-scenes details about how her books became such popular films.  
As well as some very famous fans, Cressida can now count students at Walton High amongst the many readers who are absolutely spellbound by her writing!
