Flying Theatre Company visit Downside

On Tuesday, the Juniors and Third Form were entertained in our recently refurbished theatre by the Flying Theatre Company, which specializes in educational language drama.

The production, entitled Bon Voyage was conducted entirely in French, incorporating vocabulary relevant to the KS3 and GCSE curriculum, including health, travel, sport, family, food and interests. The performance included music and singing, special effects, mime, stage fighting, magic and comedy. All pupils agreed they had thoroughly enjoyed the event and are now determined to book surfing holidays in France! A special mention goes to pupil, Freddie, who entertained us all with his stage participation in the final rap and whose budding thespian talents will be watched with keen interest!
