The final BACIRC post for this year features our Year 6 student’s final activity in The National Year of Reading!
They finished the year by writing and then performing their own ‘Tales’ based (very loosely) on Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales
Every year Year 6 produces an abridged Shakespearean play but this year they went one step further and wrote their own production. They called it The Broughton Tales and included:
The Teacher’s Tale
The Prefect’s Tale
The Parent’s Tale
The Office Tale
The Canteen’s Tale
The Groundsman’s Tale
The Music Tale
The Librarian’s Tale
The Reverend’s Tale where a Christmas drama featured.
The introduction to each ‘Tale’ was in rhyme after which the students enacted one scene to match the ‘Tale’.
The Librarian’s Tale highlighted the usual Year 6 ‘gripe’ of not being allowed to borrow books restricted to High School Students.
