Kite Flying on Watership Down and The Importance of Being Earnest.
8SEW began the day by hopping on the mini buses and travelling up to Watership Down in Kingsclere with Mr and Mrs Inglis. We hiked up the hill, playing cricket and of course admiring the beautiful scenes of Kingsclere (we couldn’t quite see Elstree!). Having assembled our miniature foam planes (signifying the men on D-day), we let them glide in the light breeze, as well as using it to fly our kites.
In the afternoon we headed to the Watermill Theatre, to see The Importance of Being Earnest. With a multi layered plot, it was very humorous and surprisingly gripping. After an ice-cream in the interval in the grounds of the beautiful Watermill, we watched the second half of the play, the final scenes tying together all of the loose ends and subsequently leaving us with food for thought. This was another thoroughly enjoyable day for the class.
