The Comedy of Errors

By Edwin, Grayson, Jake, Luke and William

(Mr Rex’s English Group)

Once upon a time Aegon has twin sons [Antipholus] who are noblemen. He rescues another pair of twins, [Dromio] who become the boys’ servants.

They go on a boat and a big storm rages. Lightning strikes the mast, waves crash onto wooden planks of the deck and thunder roars loudly. Aegon tries to save the children but his one son and servant get swept overboard. Do they drown?

Aegon takes his son Antipholus and his servant Dromio back to Syracuse. Meanwhile, the other Antipholus and Dromio get washed up in Ephesus. Antipholus of Ephesus marries a mad woman called Adriana.

Aegon takes Antipholus of Syracuse and Dromio of Syracuse to Epehesus to look for the missing twins. So the comedy of errors begin!

Shakespeare is in town!

Year 3 have begun a few weeks of studying Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ and what better way to involve ourselves in his writing that to start with some acting.

The children created freeze frames, then ‘came to life’ and added their own language and action to retell the opening of the story.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

g (Small)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the School Play at the end of last term returned to the form where all Prep School Year Groups were part of the cast, rather than just Years 5-8. Featuring a cast of over 160, Shakespeare’s story of love, complications, disappointment and confusion played to appreciative audiences over three nights. What were the impressions of Year 3 in being part of this musical production? How was the play within a play, with all its comic elements?
