Lead Creative Schools - To Catch a Dream - Midsummer Night's Dream - Session 1

We had out first session in our Lead Creative Schools project, 'To Catch a Dream', based on A Midsummer Night's Dream.

This session was led by Gareth Warren, an actor who brought with him a bundle of ideas and enthusiasm which our pupils instantly loved. As this was the first session, a lot of name games were played to allow Gareth to try to get to know us as quickly as possible.
We also played games to help build up our confidence and trust in orally playing with words. These games were fun and very competitive. We also explored the use of the words thee, thy and thou, again using our voices as instruments.

Finally we went through the entire play using the 'whoosh' technique with pupils taking the parts of characters as Gareth read through a summary of the play.


  1. This was really fun I enjoyed it so much. My favourite part was when we did the name thing because we were able to be as silly as we wanted to be. I think that we could improve on the acting when we do the thee,thy,thou off.
