All the Worlds a Stage! Shakespeare Festival 2024 Edition

‘All the Worlds a Stage’

The opening line of one of The Bards most famous speeches performed by Reception on the first day of our Shakespeare Festival!

Across three days, every child from Reception to Year 6 performed the words of William Shakespeare on our stage.

We have seen sword fights, fairy spells, witches, tempests and even some 50s dance moves.

It has been incredible to watch the talent that pours out of all the pupils. The courage and confidence it takes to step out onto a stage and perform is immense, and seeing the confident performances of even our shyest pupils was so heartwarming. Everyone tried their very best and we are so proud of them all.

A huge congratulations to all the children!

The Pause

At St James, we feel it is important to introduce our pupils to stillness and allow them to discover how to be inwardly free and deeply at ease within themselves. A short period of 5-10 minutes at the beginning and middle of every day is allocated to quietude in which pupils may meditate, contemplate or simply be still – according to their own spiritual inclinations.
