Year 7 Ancient Greek Theatre Mask Competition
In Drama in term 3, Year 7 learnt about how western theatre as we know it developed and flourished in Ancient Greece. A number of students entered a Greek theatre mask making competition. Students were asked to design and make a mask that represented a character or creature from an ancient Greek myth of their choosing. The Drama Department and A level Drama and Theatre students (with some input from Year 10 GCSE Drama students) had the hard task of choosing the top three entries. They were all brilliant and very creative. All the pupils who entered clearly put a lot of time and effort into their masks – they fully embraced the task and clearly researched their chosen character. Each student will receive a chocolate prize and the first place entry will also receive a colourful book about theatre. Well done to everyone that took part!
