Year 9 investigate the background to 'The Railway Children'
There have been some fantastic contributions submitted by our Year 9 drama students who have been researching the social, historical and cultural context of The Railway Children. It is the play they are studying for the Live Theatre Review element of their exam which involves watching a production, making notes, studying its context, and then describing, analysing and evaluating an aspect of the production.
The stage version of The Railway Children often takes place in a railway museum or in a part of a railway station and has a live steam train which travels along a track through the centre of the stage! A memorable production. Although the DVD of the production is not the same, the clever use of staging, narration by the children and events of the story mean it is enjoyed by all.
Our Year 9s are learning the skills to develop their exam technique and have been really enjoying learning about the Edwardian period.
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
Some of our talented musicians were able to play to their parents and carers in a Summer Showcase on Monday evening. Here's a mini taster of our band and their amazing musical talent! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/3wIeXrP16D 6:47 AM - 22 Jul 2021
