The Drama Department from Francis Holland runs a joint Shakespeare project with Kingsbury Green
In June 2019, thirty pupils from Kingsbury Green Primary School were invited to Francis Holland School to design and paint butterflies and masks for use in A Midsummer's Night's Dream.
The partnership project is intended to afford specialist prop-making and artistic expertise to the pupils from Kingsbury. The painted props will be used by pupils from both schools in their Shakespeare productions. Lighting and technical skills have been developed too.
The partnership is based on a link established by the Head of Drama.
Paint and material. Teacher time. Pupil time.
Qualitative. The props will be used later in the term and will delight both parents and children.
Year 8 and 9 girls from Francis Holland and Year 5 pupils at Kingsbury.
A one-off which is hoped to be repeated in the future.
