To mark the end of their English topic of Shakespeare, Year 6 pupils at the Royal Prep School in Hindhead trod the boards at the Globe Theatre and were treated to two arias from the opera of Romeo and Juliet by singer Becca Ivey-Scott.

The pupils had an inspiring day in London, which included a tour of the Globe and performing on the stage, followed by a workshop with one of the actors.

Mrs Ivey-Scott visited the prep school and blew the children away with her incredible performance, showcasing two very different pieces of music from the opera Romeo and Juliet.

The children could sense the point of the plot from the music; the first aria was upbeat and romantic as Juliet falls in love with Romeo, and the second was traumatic and filled with drama as Juliet realises, mistakenly, that her Romeo is dead.

Clare Mee, deputy headteacher and Year 6 teacher at the Royal Prep School, said: “What an incredible way to complete our learning – it provoked quite a response from us all.”
