On Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 April 2017, students from Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form, Alec Hunter Academy, Tabor Academy and Ramsey Academy, came together to take part in able and talented activities led by TANGO.
Activities included a drama workshop led by Miss. White which focussed on the West End smash hit, Matilda! Students worked creatively to bringing sections of the script to life. They created some of Roald Dahl’s best loved characters, including Matilda, Miss Trunchbull and Bruce Bogtrotter!
Students also had the opportunity to investigate the impact of globalisation with Mrs Barnicoat. They took part in a team building activity to recreate the idea of trade and inequality around the world.
They then took part in a programming session with Mr Lugton. Students used Python to create a short RPG word based game that they can add to and adapt in the future.
The final session with Mrs Carter, looked at creative writing in a gothic style. Students developed writing technique to create their own stories, based on some interesting and stimulating objects.
Thank you to all staff that gave up their time during the Easter holiday to deliver these sessions and to the Year 7 students for taking part.
