Students craft impressive Elizabethan Theatre models
In English, Year 7 are currently studying ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and for homework, Mrs Weston’s class were given the task of either drawing a diagram or creating a model of Shakespeare’s Globe. Alice Hutchinson and Mason Lockey went above and beyond expectations by creating these excellent constructions of an Elizabethan Theatre which demonstrates their keen observational skills, as well as their craftsmanship in bringing their vision to reality.
Mason’s cleverly constructed model is made from a recycled food container which has been carefully painted to represent the theatre, while the thatch roof has been created using jute hanging basket liner.
Alice’s detailed model is considerably larger and made from cardboard, complete with beautifully drawn details, a stage made from lolly-pop sticks and matchsticks have been used to create the effect of a thatch roof. Alice’s model also includes beautiful, tiny flags which explain the key features of the Elizabethan theatre.
Their English teacher, Mrs Weston, said, “I am absolutely blown away by the effort made by these fabulous students. Their models are simply stunning and I am very proud of their hard work and impressive creations.”
